In order to export plants I need a Phyto Cirt. The USDA is telling me that the only way they can issue one is if we get an import permit form the country we are exporting to.

 The official responsible for issuing the import permit requested the following information. I have responded to the best of my abilities but want to expand my statement and make sure I am on firm ground. Any input would be most appreciated.

Respectively submitted,

John DeMott


1.      Cautions taken to avoid Lethal Yellowing contamination:

We have not had a serious outbreak of LY in South Florida in the last 12 to 15 years. It is no longer a threat to our landscapes.  An isolated tree, usually a coconut, may die occasionally but it is quickly removed. The only way to tell how it died is by observing the symptoms of decline. The protoplasm causing this problem has not been isolated nor have scientist been able to infect healthy trees.

2.      Specimen or plant sample analysis regarding presence of LY:

Sampling for lethal yellowing can only be accomplished at a cellular level and sampling healthy trees would be cost prohibitive.
