    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The authorities in Costa Rica today highlighted the success of a program that has virtually eliminate pests of ornamental plants known as ‘dracaenas exports,’ which has remained open in the U.S. market.

    Sano Nursery’s “Clean Stock Program” succeeded in only having 3% of companies to have pest problems last year, reported the State Phytosanitary Service (SFE) of the Ministry of Agriculture.

    The “Clean Stock Program” is a bilateral initiative between Costa Rica and the United States that provides tools to reduce the number of plants with troublesome insects that can be passed in the exported material.

    The program includes training to achieve good agricultural practices in order to mitigate the risk of plant pests during export.

    According to the SFE, during 2013 they registered 66 small packing plants and 111 companies in the program.

    Official data indicates that in 2013 Costa Rican foreign sales of these plants reached $6,000,000. (ACAN-EFE)
