PLNA Members Star Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle and North Creek Nurseries - SANC Certified

These two progressive nurseries have committed to continually and proactively address plant health issues before they arise and embrace the teamwork needed to grow quality nursery stock and have earned the Systems Approach to Nursery Certification (SANC). With their SANC certification, these growers will now be able to include the SANC logo with their plant shipments. The logo evidences their meeting stringent growing, training, self-inspection and audit requirements to make their businesses stronger and more resilient against plant pests and diseases, changes in regulations, quarantines and the threat of stop-sales or recalls.

SANC is an initiative under the guidance of the National Plant Board, AmericanHort, other industry members and the USDA.

“A unique partnership involving plant regulators and the horticulture industry, SANC is poised to benefit plant growers, retailers, installers, consumers, and the environment,” said Craig Regelbrugge, AmericanHort senior vice president. “We and our Horticultural Research Institute foundation are deeply committed to the effort as the pilot continues.”

Dana Rhodes, SANC Program Chair – National Plant Board and PDA State Plant Regulatory Official, added, “It is exciting to see nurseries, greenhouses and states partnering in SANC. I believe this program allows states and green industry members to strengthen their relationships and provide healthy plants throughout the U.S.”
