Identify current invasive and non-native pests and pathogens threatening the agriculture sector, and review the projected risk exacerbated by climate change.

Prioritize the detection and response needed by the projected risk, and develop public-private research plans with farmers, universities, and local governments.

Track and collectively seek state and federal funding opportunities for research of non-native pest and pathogen prevention, based on the documented risk to the local agricultural economy.
