USDA’s Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Greg Ibach recently announced the allocation of almost $70 million from Section 10007 of the 2014 Farm Bill to support 494 projects in 49 states, Guam, and Puerto Rico. These projects prevent the introduction or spread of invasive plant pests and diseases that threaten U.S. agriculture and the environment, as well as ensure the availability of a healthy supply of clean plant stock in the U.S.
