MODIFICATIONS OF PINK BOLLWORM QUARANTINE REGULATIONS
Owing to the recent discovery of the pink bollworm in okra, these regulations are amended to add okra to the list of articles the interstate movement of which is restricted from regulated areas. This amendment also adds the Texas counties of Duval, Jim Hogg, La Salle, Maverick, Webb, and Zapata to the regulated areas because of the finding of new areas of infestation.
