Emerging Diseases and Pathogens

Provide a forum of discussion and advise for national prevention and preparedness issues related to non-indigenous/indigenous and high consequence plant pathogens introduced advertently (as agro-crime or agro-terrorism) or inadvertently (naturally or accidentally) impacting or potentially impacting US agriculture, natural resources and food systems, among committee members representing the academic, governmental (State and Federal), and industry sectors. Liaise with other relevant APS subject matter committees and APS in general including other agency initiatives (such as USDA's National Plant Disease Recovery System, National Plant Diagnostic Network, USDA PPQ Plant Pathogen Select Agents & Toxins, and APHIS import regulations) in sharing and communicating science-based information to secure US agriculture, natural resources and food systems through awareness of emerging disease threats, prevention, detection, diagnosis, epidemiology, response to, and recovery from or managing plant disease threats to agriculture. Explore cooperative initiatives in the international plant pathology community that will contribute to global food and natural resources security and trade flow through research, inspections or regulatory actions.
