The Center for Plant Health Science and Technology (CPHST) is the scientific support for USDA-APHIS-PPQ. The primary missions of CPHST are:

- Identify pathways used by exotic plant pests & weeds

- Assess risks exotic pests pose to food, fiber & environment

- Develop, adapt & support technology to detect, identify & mitigate impact of significant exotic pests

- Ensure methods, protocols & equipment used by PPQ are effective & efficient

CPHST produces a couple of newsletters each year to keep stakeholders and the general public aware of the current news and technologies associated with safeguarding our natural resources.
