These accessions are maintained in insect-proof screen houses to prevent reinfection and are regularly tested to ensure cleanliness. Accessions held in the foundation collection are available for sale and distribution to growers and nurseries across the United States.

Fee Schedule and Payment (All prices in USD)
Fee Schedule: CPCNW has updated its fee schedule for product pricing and processing as of April 1, 2022. Current fee schedule.
Payment: Once the shipment is prepared, an invoice will be sent to the customer. This may be paid either by credit card via our secure payment link or by sending a check for the invoiced amount made out to CPCNW/WSU to 24106 N Bunn Rd, Prosser, WA 99350. Orders will not be shipped until payment has been received.
We have made every effort over the decades to ensure access to our collection for the international community. Recently, there have been dramatic changes in the management of phytosanitary requirements for exports to most countries around the world. The time, effort, and cost involved in ensuring that every shipment complies with the receiving countries’ phytosanitary regime are becoming increasingly prohibitive.
As a result, the CPCNW will only guarantee distribution to the U.S. and Canada and countries whose phytosanitary requirements can be met in-house by the CPCNW. Requests to ship propagative material to counties that require additional testing and/or declarations for pests and diseases not tested for by CPCNW will be declined.
Also, to ensure sufficient time to research and confirm the phytosanitary requirements, the CPCNW requests that the customer send their import permit and additional declarations, in English, to the CPCNW no less than three (3) months before the end of the sale request period. Import permits and additional declarations sent less than three (3) months before the end of the sale request period will only be accepted at the CPCNW Director’s discretion.
