The National Clean Plant Network for Sweetpotatoes (NCPN-Sweetpotatoes) is an association of clean plant centers, scientists, educators, state and federal regulators, certified seed growers, and commercial growers from the fresh market and processing industries concerned with the health of planting stock (seed roots and vine cuttings).  It formally joined the NCPN specialty crops network in 2015.  The network operates under the umbrella of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

“Having clean healthy plants and seed has increased yield and pack-out for us and our customers. The clean seed program is a MUST HAVE for us to produce high quality and yield, to supply the growing demand for healthy great sweetpotatoes.”

“The clean plant program has given our commercial production the economic confidence to increase all input levels in a constant effort to reach for greater financial returns per acre.”
