from Greenhouse Grower
USDA's Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service has informally indicated to ANLA that they have been intercepting several quarantine pests, notably pathogens, on imports of boxwood from various countries. APHIS is exploring restricting buxus imports worldwide until risk assessments are conducted and appropriate mitigation measures are put into place, according to Craig Regelbrugge, ANLA's vice president for government relations and research.
