NCPN Grapes Network Business

Members of the grape industry were instrumental in the founding of the National Clean Plant Network in 2008. Two specialty crops, grapes and fruit & nut trees, held their organizational meetings to join the NCPN in 2008. 

The headquarters of the National Clean Plant Network for Grapes is at Foundation Plant Services (FPS) at the University of California, Davis.  FPS also manages the primary foundation vineyardfortheNCPN.

At the outset in 2008, the NCPN for Grapes was divided into two regions - the Western Clean Plant Network (which included California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington) and the Eastern Clean Plant Network (the remaining states). In 2010, the NCPN Grapes eliminated the regional division and consolidated into a single national grape network.


NCPN LogoThe National Clean Plant Network (NCPN) is a voluntary association of specialty crop networks that have joined to promote the use of pathogen-tested, healthy plant material for food crops in the United States. The NCPN operates under the auspices of three agencies within the United States Department of Agriculture - Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA).
