    Emerging and Threatening Plant Pathogens: Assuring Biopreparedness

    A safe agricultural system is critical to national security, but U.S. crops, a cornerstone of our nation's economy, are vulnerable to attack.

Potential costs of a terrorist attack include reductions in crop yield and quality, increased production costs and food prices, financial instability of rural communities, and loss of public confidence in the food supply.
