The APS Public Policy Board (PPB) is very supportive of the efforts of the USDA National Plant Diagnostic Network (NPDN) and has worked with agency representatives and legislators to ensure the continuation of this critical network.
APS continued its efforts to raise the awareness of the critical need for NPDN funding to Congress during its recent visit to DC.

The Public Policy Board requests your help in saving the National Plant Diagnostic Network. As many of you learned at the PPB Booth in Hawaii, becoming engaged and contacting your congressional representatives is easy.
