This is achieved through co-operation with The Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) in the successful operation of the Plant Health Propagation Scheme (PHPS).

The PHPS is a long established voluntary certification scheme. The aim of the scheme is to promote the production of certified healthy proven planting material from high quality parent stock.

The NSA produce the highest health nuclear, foundation and super elite grade stock. Propagators use these certified stocks to produce plants for supply to fruit growers.

 

History of The Nuclear Stock Association (NSA)

The Nuclear Stock Association (NSA) was formed in 1953 by the National Farmers Union (NFU) of England and Wales.  The NFU had been asked by the Ministry of Agriculture, now the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), to find a method of propagating and distributing healthy, pest and disease free planting stock of commercially grown strawberry varieties to the fruit industry.

The NSA now supplies pathogen tested stock to propagators throughout the world via its members.

The NSA is a self-financing non-profit making society.
