Plants for planting - including nursery stock, roots, bulbs, seeds and other plant parts

The regulations in 7 CFR part 319 prohibit or restrict the importation into the United States of certain plants and plant products to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. The regulations contained in "Subpart-Plants for Planting" (§ 319.37) prohibit or restrict the importation of living plants, plant parts, and seeds for planting.


All articles covered under the plants for planting regulations must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate of inspection issued by the national plant protection service of the exporting country with the exception of certain greenhouse-grown plants from Canada or articles accompanied by a PPQ-issued permit that specifically provides an exemption from such documentation.
