Plant Industry - Plant Protection Section - Sweetpotato Weevil Program
Regulatory agencies in other states and/or countries require proof and certification that sweetpotatoes are sweetpotato weevil-free when shipped and moved into those areas. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in the loss and/or destruction of shipments and economic losses for growers. To facilitate this process, The NCDA&CS provide the necessary inspection services and certification cards to growers shipping sweetpotatoes to other areas where these conditions are required. Contact your regional PPS to assist you with these services.
