SUMMARY OF STATE NURSERY-STOCK SHIPPING REQUIEMENTS AND PlANT
QUARANTINES AND REGULATIONS AFFECTING INTERSTATE SHIPMENTS
The information contained in this summary was compiled from material received from the plant quarantine official of Arizona and has been approved by him. It is issued for the convenience of plant quarantine inspectors, 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 Arizona gives the general requirements for shipping
nursery stock into that State, as well as digests of the State plant quarantines and regulations affecting itrterstate shipments. An appendix 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 relating to the movement of plants entirely within the State.
The information contained 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 tests of the regulations and quarantines, and it is not to be interpreted. as legally authoritative. For detailed information address the State Entomologist. Commission of Agriculture and Horticulture, P. 0. Box 6246, Phoenix, Ariz.
In addition to 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 interstate movement of specified plants, plant products, and other articles from designated regulated areas. However, some of these quarantines reoolate tke 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.
