B. 3. P. Q. 57--42t Revised Juno 9, 1953



The information contained in this summary was compiled from material
received from the plant quarantine official of South Carolina and has been
approved by him. It is issued for the convenience of plant quarantine in-
spectors, shippers, transportation agents, truckers, and others concerned
in the interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other materials
subject to State regulation on account of plant pests.

The summary for South Carolina gives the general requirements for
shipping nursery stock into that State, as well as digests of the State
plant quarantines and. regulations affecting interstate shipments. An .p-
pendix furnishes information on post-office requirements for mailing
plants, as well as terminal-inspection procedure. This summary does not
include digests of nursery-stock or plant-quarantine requirements relat-
ing to the movement of plants entirely within the State.

The information.eontained in this circular was prepared by Juliet H.
Carrington, Division of Plant Quarantines, and is believed to be correct
and complete up to the time of preparation, but it is not intended to be
used independently of or as a substitute for the original texts of the
regulations and quarantines, and it is not to be interpreted as legally
authoritative. For detailed information address the Entomologist, State
Crop Pest Commission, Clemson, South Carolina.

In addition te State requirements, shippers will need to take into
consideration applicable plant quarantines of the United States Department
of Agriculture, In most instances these quarantines regulate the inter-
state movement of specified plants, plant products, and other articles
from designated regulated areas. However, some of these quarantines regu-
late the interstate movement of certain articles into designated protected
areas. Copies of such quarantines may be obtained from the Bureau of
Entomology and Plant Quarantine, Washington 25, D. C.
