Plant Industry Services
The Nursery Inspection Program conducts inspections of nursery stock in an effort to prevent the spread of insect, weed and disease pests. Each year, the Office of Plant Industry Services inspects more than 8,500 acres of nursery stock for pests and diseases. More than 2,000 nurseries and nursery stock dealers are registered to operate within Virginia.
The Plants and Plant Products Inspection Law authorizes and requires the annual registration and inspection of all plant nurseries including hops in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This law also authorizes the registration and inspection of retail establishments selling nursery stock.
The Boxwood Blight Cleanliness Program requires continuing education on this disease for participating nurseries. Below are some online resources on the management and biology of this pathogen to help meet this requirement.
Contact your regional Office of Plant Industry Services office for questions and to schedule an inspection.
