Import/export of barley germplasm
Contributors to this page: ICARDA, Syria (Siham Asaad, Abdulrahman Moukahal).
Barley is a crop under the mandate of ICARDA. It is very important to remember that an International Phytosanitary Certificate is always required for any plant germplasm exchange.
The requirements of countries that request and receive seed from ICARDA Headquarters located in Syria have been collected from the permits granted to ICARDA for exportation of barley experimental seed. The information in this table was updated to May 2009. It indicates specific requirements and the pathogens and pests of which seed should be free when it is sent to a given country.
Please consider that:
- The information received from the same country may vary from a permit to another; therefore the latest has been considered the most valid one.
- Importing seed from another country other than Syria may have other requirements depending on seed origin.
- It is always advisable before sending a shipment to contact the consignee in the recipient country to confirm the information reported in this table.
