Vietnam lifts ban on import of Indian groundnut

New Delhi: Vietnam has formally lifted the ban on import of Indian groundnut, thereby providing market access after 9 months. The Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development (MARD) has formally communicated the decision to the Government of India, stating that the Plant Protection Department of Vietnam (PPD) will issue the import permits for groundnuts for 18 January 2016.

The withdrawal of ban has come in the wake of visit of Vietnam delegation to India in December 2015. The delegation was satisfied after seeing fumigation facilities, export procedures and export system for export of groundnuts export from India, as per the Standard Operating Procedure developed by Directorate of plant Protection, Quarantine and Storage, Faridabad.

Vietnam had temporarily suspended import of groundnuts from India on 6 April 2015 due to interceptions of quarantine pests Caryedon serratus and Trogodrma granarium in consignments of groundnuts exported since January 2015.

In order to resolve this problem, the DAC&FW forwarded technical information for finalizing the pest analysis of the groundnut bruchid (Caryedon serratus aka Olivier), a detailed report on the investigation and remedial measures taken along with standard operating procedures and action taken in the matter to Vietnam. The thorough Indian scientific analysis persuaded the Vietnamese authority to lift the ban.
