APHIS Posts New Pale Cyst Nematode (PCN) Eradication Program Report

Last Modified: Jan 19, 2021

APHIS' Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) Pale Cyst Nematode (PCN) Eradication Program in Idaho has posted its 2020 third quarter report (July 1 - September 30). The report updates program activities and eradication progress, and provides quarterly and aggregate regulatory, survey, and laboratory data.

The PCN Eradication Program is a cooperative effort between Plant Protection and Quarantine, Idaho State Department of Agriculture, and potato industry stakeholders. The program's overarching goals are to control PCN spread and eventually establish Idaho as PCN-free.

Stakeholders can use the quarterly reports to monitor program activities and progress, and support their own management or policy decisions as needed.
