Dianthus spp. (carnation) cuttings

Importation of Dianthus spp. from Kenya [Docket # APHIS-2018-0068]. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 2

APHIS is notifying the public that it proposes to make changes to the import requirements in the US 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. APHIS is proposing to allow 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 introduciton of quarantine pests through the importation of such cuttings. APHIS is making these changes avaiable to the public for review and comment.
