The Code of Federal Regulations (7CFR Part 319.37-8) describes the science-based systems approach required to produce bellflower plants for planting in approved growing media for importation from Denmark. These are researched and established pest mitigation measures required by APHIS for all plants for planting in approved growing media that are authorized for import into the United States.
The systems approach described in 7CFR 319.37-8 requires that plants be grown solely in a greenhouse using appropriate sanitary measures to exclude plant pests from establishing there, requires phytosanitary inspections of the plants, and oversight by the national plant protection organization (NPPO) for Denmark in the form of a written agreement with APHIS to enforce all requirements of 7CFR 319.37-8. Approved growing media are listed in 7CFR 319.37-8.
