Welcome to the CPCNW


CPC_NW2The Clean Plant Center Northwest is a collaborative effort of scientists, researchers, growers, and nurseries. We work together to increase the economic sustainability of specialty crop production in the United States.

At the Clean Plant Center Northwest (CPCNW), we offer clean plant services for the fruit trees, grapes and hops industries. Our clean plant services include virus- and virus-like disease detection and treatment and the production, distribution, and retention of healthy plant material. In addition to our clean plant services, we conduct targeted research in fruit trees and hops to find better, faster and cheaper ways to test for viruses and better ways to manage diseases. The talented and diverse staff at CPCNW have relevant scientific, horticultural, research, laboratory, and management expertise.

“Start clean, stay clean” is more than just a tagline. It’s our philosophy. We know the stability and growth of the fruit trees, grapes, and hops industries depends upon healthy, productive plants. The Clean Plant Center Northwest propagates and distributes clean plant materials across the U.S. to ensure orchards, vineyards, and hopyards start with healthy, disease-free plants.
