Query Regulation Data in GRIN Taxonomy

Use the Genus or species name search box to find regulations that apply for a species (results will include applicable genus and family regulations). Use the Genus name search box to find genus-level regulations (including applicable family regulations). These two searches cannot be used at the same time, but either one can be combined with a family search. CITES regulations will be included for all geography options unless one or more regulation types or states is selected.
Note: Every effort is made to ensure the query results for regulations are accurate and current. However, regulations frequently change. Users should consult with the appropriate state or federal agencies with any questions about the accuracy of the regulatory content presented here.





The NPGS distributes plant germplasm to professional scientific research individuals and organizations, and verified plant breeders. Requests from producers and educators will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but only when NPGS germplasm that is not readily available from commercial sources is a justified requirement. NPGS germplasm is not available for individual, home, or community gardening. Requests to support educational objectives are typically considered only for college-level projects. Please view the short video on the NPGS for more details.
