Opposition to South African citrus imports into Georgia ports

Two associations representing Georgia citrus growers expressed strong concerns about a federal proposal to remove restrictions on the ports of entry into which South African citrus may enter the United States, according to Citrus Industry. Removal of port restrictions would allow the importation of the citrus into all U.S. ports, including Savannah, Georgia.

The restriction removal was proposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA/APHIS), the same body that in April approved imports of fresh citrus into the United States from China. The Georgia Citrus Association (GCA) joined numerous others in opposing the decision to allow the Chinese imports.
