7 CFR Part 319

[Docket No. 03-019-4]


Certification Program for Imported Articles of Pelargonium spp. 
and Solanum spp. to Prevent Introduction of Potato Brown Rot; 
Correction

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are correcting an error in the amendatory instructions in 
our final rule that amended the provisions of a certification program 
for articles of Pelargonium spp. and Solanum spp. imported from 
countries where the bacterium Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 is 
known to occur. The final rule was effective and published in the 
Federal Register on October 24, 2005 (70 FR 61351-61362, Docket No. 03-
019-3).

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 1, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Jeanne Van Dersal, Import 
Specialist, Phytosanitary Issues Management Team, PPQ, APHIS, 4700 
River Road Unit 140, Riverdale, MD 20737-1236; (301) 734-6653.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a final rule effective and published in 
the Federal Register on October 24, 2005 (70 FR 61351-61362, Docket No. 
03-019-3), we amended the provisions of a certification program for 
articles of Pelargonium spp. and Solanum spp. imported from countries 
where the bacterium Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 is known to 
occur.
    In the final rule, it was our intention to amend the regulations by 
amending paragraph (r)(3)(viii) of Sec.  319.37-5 to modify its 
restrictions on growing media used in production of articles of 
Pelargonium spp. and Solanum spp. under the certification program. 
However, our amendatory instruction referred instead to paragraph 
(r)(3)(vii). This document corrects that error by revising paragraph 
(r)(3)(viii).
