Welcome to the National Clean Plant Network for Citrus
The National Clean Plant Network for Citrus (NCPN Citrus) is a body of researchers, extension specialists, state regulatory personnel and industry stakeholders from California, Florida, Texas, Arizona, Alabama , Louisiana and Hawaii that formed the NCPN Citrus, part of the National Clean Plant Network.
Citrus is susceptible to many diseases caused by viruses and other graft-transmissible pathogens. These diseases severely limit tree growth and reduce yields. To prevent the spread of these potentially devastating diseases, you need a source of clean or pathogen-tested budwood for citrus tree propagation.
The NCPN Citrus has established quarantine and certification programs in several of the major citrus-producing states to facilitate the importation, testing, and release of pathogen-tested citrus to nurserymen. The NCPN – Citrus maintains and makes available to the public an extensive collection of ancient and newly developed citrus from around the world suitable for any use, including juice, fresh fruit and ornamental landscape.
