NCPN Webinar Series: Clean Plants for the Future


How the National Clean Plant Network, new testing protocols, and a revitalized New York certification program will reduce the risk of nursery-transmitted viral pathogens.

See below for links to the slides and recordings of the webinars. 


Since 2008, National Clean Plant Network Centers have joined together to efficiently produce, maintain, and distribute healthy grapevine budwood to the industry.  These materials are starting to make their way to nurseries, and ultimately, to end-users.  This four-part webinar series will cover the process of producing and distributing virus-tested plant material, graft-transmissible diseases and their impact, New York State’s new testing and certification program, and New York nurseries’ investment in new motherblocks and propagation procedures.
