US: APHIS willing to simplify carnation import from Kenya

APHIS proposes to make changes to the import requirements in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Plants for Planting Manual for imports of Dianthus spp. (carnation) cuttings from Kenya.

Currently, Dianthus spp. cuttings from Kenya require mandatory postentry quarantine within the United States. The proposal is to allow Dianthus spp. cuttings from Kenya to be imported into the United States without postentry quarantine, subject to certain conditions.

These changes to the USDA Plants for Planting Manual would relieve restrictions on Dianthus spp. cuttings from Kenya while continuing to address the possible introduction of quarantine pests through the importation of such cuttings.

The changes are available to the public for review and comment. Click here for more information.
