  APHIS proposed changes to nursery stock regulations
From: "Marge Talt" mtalt at hort.net> on 2005.03.08 at 06:12:34(12777)
Dear All,

You may or may not be aware that USDA-APHIS is proposing major
changes in the regulations for the importation of nursery stock, i.e.
what they are now calling "plants for planting", which means ALL
plant parts capable of growing - rooted and non-rooted cuttings and
plants, seeds, corms, bulbs and tubers.

This post is late in the day since the public comment period ends
Thursday, March 10, however I have not had a chance to write about
this until now for various reasons I will not bore you with. First,
I apologize to those of you on more than one of the lists I'm posting
this on, but I think it's important to try to summarize the main
points of the proposed regulation that affect nursery and
plantspeople the most....at least my take on it after many readings
of same.
