Mediterranean Crops

 

Application to import mediterranean crops which include deciduous fruit types, wine grapes, berry fruits, olives and fynbos species can be submitted to the Stellenbosch office of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
The quarantine detention of imported propagation material consists of an inspection of the material and the phytosanitary documentation, and an appropriate decontamination treatment before the material is grafted onto virus free rootstocks.
The majority of grafted plants are detained in official quarantine facilities at Stellenbosch Quarantine Station.  At Buffelspoort Quarantine Station selected imports such as low chill stone fruits and strawberries, are detained.
