Plant Pathology

The Plant Pathology Program at the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) has expanded and evolved to include laboratory-based pathogen testing, microorganism and nematode identification, STAR-D accredited clinical diagnosis of plant health problems, and new disease research, in addition to exotic plant disease surveys, crop health certification, disease quarantine and regulations, and public outreach and assistance. It is a science-based program to help Nevada citizens and industries achieve their goals in plant health through integrated approaches of exclusion, early detection, eradication, surveillance and management of plant diseases and disorders.
