The government of South Africa has asked USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize the importation of corn seed (Zea mays) for planting into the United States and Territories. APHIS has drafted a pest risk assessment that describes potential pests associated with the commodity.

APHIS shares draft pest risk assessments to determine whether stakeholders have information that might lead us to revise the draft assessment before we identify pest mitigations and proceed with the commodity import approval process.

The draft pest risk assessment for corn seed for planting from South Africa will be available for review and comment until November 23, 2021. To view the assessment or submit comments, go to https://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant-health/risk-assessment-consultation.
