Oregon’s Allium/Onion Leafminer Program Recognized by APHIS Under the Federally Recognized State Managed Phytosanitary (FRSMP) Program

APHIS’ Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) gives Federal recognition to the State of Oregon’s Allium leafminer program under the Federally Recognized State Managed Phytosanitary (FRSMP) program. This is the first State-managed phytosanitary program to be recognized in Oregon.

If Onion leafminer (Phytomyza gymnostoma (Loew) Diptera: Agromyzidae) is detected in imported goods, shipments will be prohibited entry to Oregon. The importer has the option to voluntarily treat, re-export, redirect, or destroy the shipment. This is equivalent to restrictions imposed by the State of Oregon when onion leafminer is detected in interstate movement.

Federal recognition of a State-managed phytosanitary program under the FRSMP Program is consistent with U.S. trade policy and fulfills international agreements while promoting safe trade. For further information, go to
