PCG Testifies in support of H.B. 2089 to House Agriculture & Livestock Committee

PCG Testifies in support of H.B. 2089 to House Agriculture & Livestock Committee On Thursday, March 25, 2021 PCGs Vice President of Operations and Legislative Affairs Kody Bessent testified before the House Agriculture and Livestock Committee in favor of H.B. 2089 relating to the detection and mitigation of plant pests and diseases.

If enacted, this legislation would establish an early plant pests and disease detection and mitigation system through cooperative agreements with the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) and institutions of higher education. The bill authorizes a full range of activities, including field inspection for early detection before the invasive species becomes established or becomes too large and costly to eradicate or control.

Early detection of plant pests and disease will allow for better containment to slow the spread of an invasive organism or species, which will allow for timely biological control methods, research and development of resistant seed varieties, and the ability to identify better management practices in order to contain the issue before it becomes more widespread in the state. One example this legislation would help with is combating fusarium wilt race 4 (FOV4) in cotton.

?Plains Cotton Growers is very appreciative of Representative Dustin Burrows (R-Lubbock) for introducing this important legislation in front of the House Agriculture and Livestock Committee. Senator Charles Perry is carrying S.B. 731, the companion legislation.
