Plant Health Task Force

About the Plant Health Task Force

The goal of this Task Force is to develop and share knowledge and technology to promote sustainable management of arthropod pests, diseases, nematodes, and weeds that negatively affect crop production in North America, as well as to prevent the introduction, establishment, and spread of invasive species affecting plant health. A network of scientists and regulators has been initiated through several training sessions focusing on invasive insect pests.
