Abstract:
The Center for Plant Health Science and Technology (CPHST) provides scientific support for the regulatory decisions, policies, and operations of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s (APHIS) Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) program in order to safeguard U.S. agriculture and natural resources. CPHST is responsible for ensuring that PPQ has the information, tools, and technology to make the most scientifically valid regulatory and policy decisions possible. In addition, CPHST ensures that PPQ’s operations have the most scientifically feasible and practical tools for pest exclusion, detection, and management. This 2011 CPHST Accomplishments Report is intended to offer an in-depth look at the status of our programs and the progress CPHST haS made toward the Center’s long-term strategic goals.
