Farmers call for fruit import ban

[ September 17, 2013   //   ]

European farmers are calling for an EU-wide ban on imports of South African citrus fruits to prevent the spread of ‘black spot’ disease in the EU, following the detection of black spot disease in five loads from the country. The Copa-Cogeca organisation says that the action is needed to stop the disease spreading to fruit in Europe.
