USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) collaborates everyday with many partners, cooperators, and stakeholders to protect plant health. To keep us on the leading edge, PPQ explores scientific frontiers, develop new plant protection methods, and make critical advancements that safeguard our nation’s agricultural and natural resources while facilitating the safe global trade of agricultural products.
