What is the purpose of inspection of nursery stock at the grower level?

Nursery stock is inspected at the grower level to insure that the stock being offered for sale is free from injurious insects and diseases. Inspections are also performed for crop and plant pests that are not known to exist in Louisiana as part of an early detection program. All nurseries that ship material out of state are required to undergo annual inspections.
