Agricultural & Environmental Sciences - Horticulture & Quarantine Programs
 
Horticulture and Quarantine Programs Division
 

The Horticulture and Quarantine Programs Division monitors for, and provides for the prevention, control and eradication of regulated and exotic crop pests or diseases endangering Louisiana’s agricultural, horticultural, and apiary industries; ensures that products certified for export are in fact free from pests; and oversees the qualifications and practices of persons engaged in the green industry. 

This is accomplished through implementation and enforcement of the Horticulture Law, Boll Weevil Eradication Law, Crop Pests and Diseases Law, Sweet Potato Diseases Law, and Apiary Law. Additionally, the Division works cooperatively with USDA-APHIS in its various plant pest survey and quarantine programs.
