  Re: Fw: USDA regulation (seed phytos)

Hello Friends,

A short while ago David Lloyd wrote a very helpful letter concerning his
experiences with the need for a phyto permit for entering the USA with
plants in California after he returned from a Heliconia conference in
Thailand, He reported that one was deff. needed in California, but that De
Hall reported that one was NOT needed in Miami, Florida till 1/1/03. Is
there any way to get an OFFICAL verification of this policy, perhaps there
is a web site that reports this, and can ANYONE out there confirm this is in
fact a policy being adhered to by the guys at Miami airport????? Nothing
could be worse than making a trip, collecting irreplacable plants, arriving
at Miami and having the inspectors throw the plants in the incinerator IF
this policy is not an 'official' one.

I thank you all for your time.
