USDA starts Minituber Laboratory Testing Pilot with Private Laboratories

APHIS will provisionally approve qualified private laboratories to conduct pathogen testing of minitubers (Solanum tuberosum) and plant tissues used for the production of minitubers in support of U.S. export certification beginning August 2016.
