PLA2I-QUJARANTINE IMPORT RESTRICTIONS

OF THE

TANGANYIKA TERRITORY


This digest of the plant-quarantine import restrictions of the
Tanganyika Territory has been prepared for the information of nursery-
men, plant-quarantine officials, and others interested in the exporta-
tion of plants and plant products to that Territory.

It was prepared by Harry B. Shaw, Plant Quarantine Inspector
in Charge, Foreign Information Service, Division of Foreign Plant
Quarantines, from the Plant Pest and Disease (Import) Regulations, 1930.

The information contained in this circular is believed to be
correct and complete up to the time of preparation, but it is not
intended to be used independently of, nor as a substitute for, the
original texts, and it is not to be interpreted as legally authoritative.
