The mission of the Department of Plant Industry is two-fold: to provide non-biased, third party quality assurance programs for the fertilizer, seed and turf industries; and to protect South Carolina's agricultural resources and natural ecosystems from the introduction and spread of plant and honey bee pests and invasive species.  We strive to accomplish this mission with Fertilizer and Seed Certification programs and Plant Pest Detection and Nursery Certification programs.  Clemson-DPI is also an accredited certifying agency for USDA Organic.
