Since the beginning of 2023, specialists from the Office of the Rosselkhoznadzor for the Bryansk, Smolensk, and Kaluga regions have controlled more than 8 million pieces of cut flowers and plants in pots sent to other regions of the Russian Federation and for export outside the country. Last year, for the same period, about 1.4 million pieces of various flower products were controlled.
So, for example, during the specified period, phytosanitary inspectors controlled more than 80 thousand cut flowers of roses and tulips sent to the Republic of Kazakhstan. In addition, export deliveries were also made to the Republic of Belarus, where more than 115 thousand potted plants of hyacinths, tulips, crocuses, and daffodils were sent.
Most of the volumes of flower products, according to 743 quarantine certificates, were issued for movement through the territory of the Russian Federation. Mostly these were cuts of roses, chrysanthemums, lilies, tulips, and irises, as well as potted plants of cyclamen and pelargonium.
This flower production mainly followed to Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as Moscow, Leningrad, Belgorod, Voronezh, Nizhny Novgorod, and a number of other regions.
All regulated products complied with phytosanitary requirements, which was confirmed by the results of laboratory studies conducted in the accredited laboratory of the Kaluga branch of the Federal State Budgetary Institution "ARRIAH" subordinated to Rosselkhoznadzor.
