Field Inspection, Export & Phytosanitary Certification
ISDA conducts field inspection on a wide variety of crops each year. Inspection applications are handled out of the Boise office for western Idaho northward to the Canadian border, and out of the Twin Falls office for all of eastern Idaho. Field inspection is mainly used for export certification purposes. However, all bean seed crops planted in Idaho must be field inspected.
Apply for Field Inspections with the Map Application System (MAPS).

Export and Phytosanitary Certification
Phytosanitary Certification facilitates export of agricultural products and may be required to meet the requirements of an importing county or state. At the request of industry the ISDA inspects shipments and issues phytosanitary certificates for both foreign and state importing markets.
To obtain a Phytosanitary Certificate (phyto), each shipment must be inspected and an application must be submitted. Additionally you may need a field inspection, official treatment, and/or official sampling and lab testing performed in order to meet the entry requirements of the importing county or state.
Please call the office nearest you to arrange for a phyto inspection.
