Title: Importation of Lemons From Northwest Argentina 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the fruits and vegetables regulations to allow the importation of lemons from northwest Argentina into the continental United States. As a condition of entry, lemons from northwest Argentina would have to be produced in accordance with a systems approach that would include requirements for importation in commercial consignments; a limited harvest period; registration and monitoring of places of production and packinghouses; grove sanitation, monitoring, and pest control practices; treatment with a surface disinfectant; and inspection for quarantine pests by the Argentine national plant protection organization. Lemons from northwest Argentina would also be required to be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate with an additional declaration stating that the lemons have been inspected and found to be free of quarantine pests and were grown and packed in accordance with the proposed requirements. In addition, within the continental United States, lemons from northwest Argentina would be prohibited from importation into or distribution in the commercial citrus-producing States of Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. We are also giving public notice of our determination that northwest Argentina is a pest-free area for citrus variegated chlorosis. This action would allow for the importation of lemons from northwest Argentina into the United States while continuing to provide protection against the introduction of quarantine pests.
