NOTICE OF QUARANTINE NO. 73


INTRODUCTORY NOTE

The coffee industry in Puerto Rico established early in the history of the
Island has fortunately remained free from at least two of the world's most
destructive coffee pests, the coffee berry borer and the coffee rust. The object
of the present quarantine is to ensure the continued freedom of Puerto Rican
coffee cultures from these and other coffee insects and diseases by prohibiting
or restricting entry into the Island of those coffee materials which might be the
means of introducing such pests. It is believed that the measures put into effect
by this quarantine will attain this end and at the same time provide for as much
freedom of movement as would be consistent with safety.
AVERY S. HOYT.
Acting Chief, Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine.



SEC. 319.73-NOTICE OF QUARANTINE NO. 73 ON ACCOUNT
OF COFFEE PESTS
(Approved March 20. 1940; effective April 1, 1940)

Having found that an injurious coffee insect (Stephanoderes. coffeee Hgdn.]
hampci Ferr.). known as the coffee berry borer, and an injurious rust disease due
to the fungus Hrmilcia vastatrix B. and Br., not heretofore widely prevalent or
distributed within and throughout the United States, exist in various countries
and localities throughout the world, I, Henry A. Wallace, Secretary of Agricul-
ture, pursuant to the provisions of the Plant Quarantine Act of August 20, 1912
(37 Stat. 315; 7 U. S. C. 151-167), as amended, have determined that, in order
to prevent the introduction of the said pests into the Island of Puerto Rico, it
is necessary to prohibit or restrict the importation into that Island from all
foreign countries and localities of unroasted seeds or beans of coffee (Coffca
spp.). coffee fruits or berries, and coffee plants and leaves.
Now. therefore, by virtue of the said Plant Quarantine Act, the public hearing
required thereby having been duly held, notice is hereby given, first, that on and
after April 1, 1940, the importation into the Island of Puerto Rico from all for-
eign countries and localities of (1) the seeds or beaus of coffee which, previous
to importation, have not been roasted to a degree which, in the judgment of an
inspector of the Department of Agriculture, will have destroy(el coffee borers
in nll stages. (2) coffee berries or fruits, and (3) coffee plaints and leaves, is
prohibited except by the Department of Agriculture for experimental and scien-
tific purposes, and except for samples of unroasted coffee seeds or beans, and
for shipments of unroasted coffee seeds or beans in transit to destinations other
than Puerto Rico; and, second, that the lmportation of samples of unroasted
eofftee seeds- or beans, and importations of unroastel coffee seeds or beans in
transit to destinations other than Puerto Rico, shall be made only under the
restrictions provided In the rules and regulations supplemental hereto: Provided,
That individual shipments of nmterials prohibited or restricted by this quaran-
tine may be exempted from its provisions in whole or in part when it shall have
been determined by the Chief of the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quaran-
