USDA-APHIS releases 513 acres from PCN-quarantined area in Idaho

The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has released 513 acres from pale cyst nematode-monitored fields in southeastern Idaho.

The release of acreage leaves 6,570 acres still regulated, 3,446 of which are classified as “infested” with PCN. The infested fields are located within an 8.5-mile radius in Bingham and Bonneville counties. The remaining acreage are fields classified as “associated” with the infested areas.

Pale cyst nematode were initially found in the region in 2007. At one point, the quarantined areas included more than 20,000 acres of land.
