Import/export of cowpea germplasm
Contributors to this section: IITA, Nigeria (M. Ayodele, L. Kumar).
Cowpea is a crop under the mandate of IITA. 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 IITA Headquarters located in Nigeria have been collected from the permits granted to IITA for exportation of cowpea experimental seed. It indicates specific requirements and the pathogens and pest that seed should be free of when it is imported 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 valid one.
- It is always advisable before sending a shipment to contact the consignee in the recipient country to confirm the information reported in this table.
