NCPN Nursery Outreach
NCPN Nursery Outreach
The NCPN for Grapes has begun development of model regulations for state grapevine certification programs in the United States. Several states (California, Missouri, Oregon and Washington) already have active grape certification programs in place.  

A working group from the NCPN for Grapes met for the first time on May 2, 2012, in Davis, California, to begin discussion on harmonization of the existing standards and development of a set of regulations that reflect NCPN policy on clean plant certification and nursery regulation. 

AGENDA May 2 2012
Draft MINUTES May 2 2012

There were two presentations at the meeting.  One presentation described certification programs in the European Union and a second one reviewed the certification programs in the United States and Canada.  Those presentations are posted below:
