Importation of Dodder Seeds Prohibited

(Decree of Feb. 21, 190g)

The importation into France of seeds of the plant parasite, dodder (Cuscuta spp.); i 'prohibited.
That prohibitionapplies also to forage-crop seeds that upon inspection axe found to contain dodder seeds; especially alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.), red clover (Trifoliun pratense L.), white-clover (Z. repens L.), alsike clover (I. hybridum L.), kidney vetch (Anthyllis vulneraria L.)O birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.). and timothy (Phleum, pratense L.).

Any mixture of seeds containing any of the above-mentioned
species is passable under special inspection; but if that operation reveals the presence of Cuscuta, the entry of the mixture into France is prohibited.

The method of sampling alfalfa and clover seeds is prescribed in the order of March 10, 1909; the same order provides also for resampling and a second analysis. Circular No. 4020, August 13, 1910, provides for the removal of dodder seeds.

Coloring of Imported Clover and Alfalfa Seed Required

(Law of July 20, 1927)

The entry is prohibited, excluding warehouse and transit, of red clover (Trifolium praten se) and alfalfa (Medicago sativ ) seed that has not been artificially colored in the proportion of at least 5 percent, to disclose its foreign origin.

Seeds that have not been colored before exportation to France may be colored under the supervision of the customs service at the expense of the interested persons. (Decree of Nov. 19, 1927.)

Restrictions on the Im-I.)ortation of Grass Seeds,

Article 1. Prohibited grass seeds.- The importation into France is prohibited of:

(1) Mixed grass seeds for forage purposes;
(2) Grass seeds intended for forage, but which are unfit
for sowing.


Eolcus grs (Brmu molsL..roWanalfsu grasses sFsuascinvli) tiost app., bhe n grs500



Art. 4. In case of bad faith of shippers or importers, Vne
privilege of delivery without inspection may be withdrawn. Moreover, the importer will be justifiable under the Law of August 1, 1905, on
frauds. Expenses of all kinds for the control and inspection of grass
seeds imported into France will be collected from the declarants by
the customs in accordance with a tariff established by the Minister of
Agriculture. Declarants will be required to permit the free drawing
of samples of grass seeds necessary for control and analysis. (Law of
Jan. 11, 1932; Journ. Off. Jan. 15, 1932.)

Sampling of Gramineous Seeds

The decree of June 13, 1933, prescribes that in the application
of the law of January 11, 1932, gramineous forage-crop seeds declared
for importation and unaccompanied by the documents mentioned in article 3 of that law, will be subject, prior to removal, and at the imDorter's
expense, to inspection and analysis intended to verify their identity,
purity, and germinability.


The importation into and transit in France are prohibited of
living plants, fruits, and seeds of chestnuts coming directly or indirectly from the Far East, as well as from countries which have not
taken protective measures against the disease caused by the fungus
Endothia paxasitica.
Derogations from this prohibition may be authorized by the
Minister of Agriculture. (Decree of 'Mar. 9, 1921.)
NOTE.~ Up to the present, since no country has taken sufficient
protective measures (Italy excepted), this prohibition is applicable,
until further orders, to all sourees except Italy. (Letter of the
Minister of Agriculture, Max. 26, 1921.)


The entry into France is prohibited of plants and parts of
,plants belonging to the genera Abies, rice Finus, Pseudotsya, and Tsuga, as being capable of introducing the needle cast disease
Qg-jabdocline pseudotgpgae). -(Decree of Nov. 26, 1930-)
