US: APHIS announces schedule for certifying offshore geranium growers
APHIS must physically visit and certify all interested offshore facilities before December 31, 2017. Participating facilities must cover the full cost of these certification visits, including travel, salary, benefits, and overtime. The facilities will provide these funds through a trust fund established through a signed cooperative services agreement.
APHIS established minimum sanitation protocols for offshore greenhouse facilities to keep Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 out of the United States.USDA’s Agricultural Bioterrorism Protection Act of 2002 lists R. solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 as a select agent because it could pose a severe threat to plant health. It causes brown rot of potato, Southern wilt of geranium, and bacterial wilt of tomato and eggplant. The pathogen can be transmitted by contaminated soil, water, equipment, and people who have come in contact with it. It can also spread when infected plants, tubers, or cuttings are moved from one place and planted in another. By ensuring that all offshore facilities meet or exceed minimum standards for greenhouse construction, sanitation, production, and pest management, APHIS can mitigate the risk of R. solanacearum before plant cuttings reach our shores.
If you are interested in scheduling a certification visit or would like more information about the protocols, send an email to Kelsey Branch, Foreign Inspection and Certification Coordinator (Kelsey.Branch@aphis.usda.gov), and Craig Regelbrugge (firstname.lastname@example.org), Senior Vice President of AmericanHort, by November 7, 2017.
