Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey

With the enormous range of foreign and domestic pests that could wreak havoc on native plant species and agricultural industries, protecting U.S. agriculture and plant resources is an almost overwhelming job. Sharing that burden across government and private-sector organizations makes the job doable. CAPS continually strives to broaden its network of partners and improve its information sharing with cooperators. By partnering and by engaging nontraditional survey partners, CAPS can expand its mission to address unintentional and intentional plant-pest introductions.

APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) officials partner with Federal and State agencies, industries, and professional organizations to develop and maintain effective emergency response systems to detect, respond to, and eliminate outbreaks of invasive pests and diseases. PPQ and State CAPS cooperators, who meticulously gather plant pest data, are important links in safeguarding U.S. agriculture and natural resources from accidental or intentional introductions of exotic plant pests. CAPS survey and monitoring programs are essential for understanding the scope of exotic pests in the United States today. As this country continues to expand its export markets around the world and increases the variety of agricultural commodities it imports, PPQ and the CAPS program will be at the forefront of shaping the rules and regulations for safeguarding U.S. agriculture in the 21st century.
