Cut Flowers From Countries With Chrysanthemum White Rust
Document Number: 05-13313
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-07
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
We are proposing to amend the cut flowers regulations to establish specific requirements for the importation of cut flowers that are hosts of chrysanthemum white rust (CWR) from countries where the disease is known to occur. We are also proposing to amend the nursery stock regulations to update lists of countries where CWR is known to occur. We are proposing these changes in order to make our cut flowers and nursery stock regulations consistent. This action is necessary because of numerous recent findings of CWR on cut flowers from Europe that pose a risk of introducing CWR in the United States.
