Rosselkhoznadzor Held Consultations with State Plant Quarantine Inspection under Cabinet of Ministers of Republic of Uzbekistan

The Rosselkhoznadzor and the State Plant Quarantine Inspection under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan held a videoconference on April, 1.

The Uzbek party spoke about the measures taken after detection of a capra beetle (Trogoderma granarium Ev.) in a consignment of dried apricots supplied to Russia from the Ferghana Oblast of Uzbekistan in December 2020. The Rosselkhoznadzor was forced to impose a ban on import of all regulated products from the Ferghana Oblast of the Republic.

According to the representatives of the foreign competent authority, the plant products stored in 23 warehouses in the Oblast are weekly monitored. According to the Uzbek experts, no cases of pest infestation have been detected up to now. In addition, the State Plant Quarantine Inspection together with the Administration of the Ferghana Oblast adopted the Program for pest control in production areas for 2021-2022. Cooperation with biological laboratories is being conducted and agrotechnical measures are being implemented.

The foreign authority noted that in the near future Uzbekistan intends to increase the number of logistics centers that accept agricultural products from private individuals. The Uzbek representatives added that private farms are now the main source of quarantine organism spread. The increased number of logistics centers will ensure phytosanitary control (surveillance) of plant products produced by local farms.

The Rosselkhoznadzor, in turn, addressed to the representatives of the State Plant Quarantine Inspection with a request to send an analysis of the current situation and the results of the activities carried out on the territory of commercial orchards and greenhouses in the Ferghana Oblast.

The parties also discussed the prospects of scientific cooperation in the phytosanitary field between the two countries.

The participants of the meeting thanked each other for their prompt cooperation and expressed confidence in further fruitful cooperation.
