MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Russian agricultural standards agency has notified grain exporters of several supplies contaminated with germs of dangerous plant diseases, the agency stated.
Quarantine phytosanitary tests of several commercial grain supplies showed that they were infected with covered smut and dwarf smut of wheat, the agency said. “These types of smut envisage quarantine for many countries importing Russian grain,” the watchdog said.
Grain crops were contaminated in all Russian federal districts, the agency noted.
The quality and safety of exported grain was given a priority, after thanks to a high harvest and favourable prices suppliers have raised sharply the pace of Russian grain foreign delivery. In December 2014 the domestic agrarian supervisory agency has tightened requirements for granting export phytosanitary certificates, after that grain exporters said they actually suspended their activity, as they could not receive exporting documents. Export restriction situation was discussed in the government, after that grain export duties were decided to introduce, but the specific resolution was not made public yet.
