(a) The Secretary is authorized to establish conditions and rules under which certain plants may be grown and certified free from virus, fungi, bacteria, or any infesting organism considered detrimental to the plant.
(b) The Secretary is authorized to issue an additional certificate, certifying that the plants were grown under special conditions or have been tested by a recognized procedure that has established them as being free from certain viruses, fungi, bacteria, or other organisms. Certification standards shall be established by the Secretary.
(c) The Secretary shall have authority to assess growers who apply for this additional certification a fee to be paid as the Secretary may direct.
