It is very important to remember that an International Phytosanitary Certificate is always required for any plant germplasm exchange.
The requirements of countries that received seed from CIMMYT Headquarters located in Mexico, have been collected from the permits granted to CIMMYT for exportation of maize experimental seed. The information in this table was updated to September 2011. IITA import requirements are included.
- The information received from the same country may vary from a permit to another, therefore the latest has been considered the valid one.
- It is advisable before sending a shipment to contact the consignee in the recipient country to confirm the information reported in this table.
- Some of the pathogens listed are not proved to be seed borne (for example Burkholderia andropogonis, Cercospora zeae-maydis), nevertheless due to the fact that these pathogens are listed among the country requirements they were included.
