Rosselkhoznadzor introduces temporary restrictions on the supply of tomatoes and peppers to Russia from the Bukhara region of the Republic of Uzbekistan

The Rosselkhoznadzor introduces temporary restrictions on the import of tomatoes and peppers originating from the Bukhara region of the Republic of Uzbekistan to Russia since July 15, 2021.

The suspension of deliveries is associated with the another detection of tomato brown fruit virus (ToBRFV) in tomatoes imported from this region. 

Restrictions are introduced according to the VII International Plant Quarantine and Protection Convention and Federal Law No. 206-FZ of 21.07.2014 "On Plant Quarantine", 

Batches shipped before July 15 are allowed to be imported into the territory of Russia only after phytosanitary inspection.

For reference: Since July 7, 2021, the tomato brown fruit virus is included in the list of quarantine pests for Russia and all the EAEU countries.

The disease leads to a decrease in yield by 70-80%, in some cases it leads to a complete loss of yield in the greenhouse. The virus spreads with fruits, seeds and seedlings. The introduction of this virus into the greenhouse farms of Russia can bring to naught the multimillion-dollar subsidies of the state to the greenhouse vegetable growing in Russia.
