Argentina sets boll weevil inspection measures

Argentina has established inspection measures as part of a national programme for the prevention and eradication of cotton boll weevils ( Anthonomus grandis). The Argentine national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, passed the measure, Resolution 155/2008, last month. The service seeks quarantine controls that would involve a mix of chemical and legal measures, preventing the spread of the insect beyond infested areas. “Control checkpoints or phytosanitary barriers and the fumigation or spraying of vehicles would be required,” the Senasa explains. The Resolution does not affect existing rules on the transportation of cotton between controlled areas and neighbouring countries.
