Importation of Plants for Planting

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulates the importation of plants for planting under the authority of the Plant Protection Act. 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. These regulations prohibit or restrict the importation of living plants, plant parts, and seeds for propagation.
