Russian authorities have approved imports of planting material from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Klix.ba reported on Monday.
Bosnian Minister of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations, Stasa Kosarac, confirmed that the Rosselkhoznadzor, Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance, has approved exports to producers of planting material and transplants from Bosnia-Herzegovina.
“These are the companies Poljargo from Samac and Adria Hishtil from Chapljina, which are listed as registered exporters of planting materials and transplants from Bosnia to the Russian Federation. 2,000,000 tomato and pepper seedlings from the Samac company and about 1,200,000 apple and pear planting material from the Capljina company are ready for the Russian Federation market,” minister Kosarac confirmed.
Minister Kosarac invited all producers of planting materials to apply through the Bosnian Plant Health Administration to request the export of their products to the lucrative Russian market.
Russian veterinary and phytosanitary inspectors visited Bosnia at the end of last year, inspecting and controlling the production capacities of companies that applied to meet the requirements for export in accordance with the requirements required by the Russian Federation market.
