By BBN Staff: In an effort to safeguard the country’s banana industry from the harmful Fusarium oxysporum (TR4) Wilt, the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) has implemented import restrictions for items coming into the country from countries that have confirmed the presence of TR4.

BAHA said that, as of this week, its quarantine measures ban the importation of of used tires, used farm equipment and machinery and other non-plant regulated articles coming from Africa, Australia,
Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Jordan, Malaysia, Mozambique, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Vietnam.

“To avoid undue delays or losses, importers or their representatives (custom brokers) are advised to seek guidance from BAHA prior to the importation of any commodity from the above-mentioned countries,” BAHA said.

BAHA noted that with the recent confirmation of the TR4 in Colombia, the entire Central American Region and Mexico is on high alert and implementing quarantine measures.
