Argentina sets new boll weevil controls

Argentine authorities have altered regulations governing the control of cotton boll weevils ( Anthonomus grandis). The national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, issued Resolution 905/2009 this month. It sets treatment methods and bars movement of cotton from quarantined areas, unless through a “phytosanitary corridor” of “raw” cotton, which is to be ginned within its area of origin. The Resolution further requires that sub-products or packaging and machinery be chemically treated before shipping. It marks a “red zone” quarantine area infested with boll weevils, and a “yellow zone” in which there is no evidence of the pest. The Senasa set inspection measures last year ( Agrow No 542, p 20).
