A consultative meeting held on False Codling Moth (FCM) in collaboration with EAA AND EHPEA

EHPEA, in partnership with the Ethiopian Agriculture Authority (EAA), convenes a consultative meeting to address the ongoing developments concerning the interception of the False Codling Moth (FCM). 

Following the publication of a scientific report by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the EU Commission is implementing strict measures. Consequently, the EU Commission has decided to raise the inspection percentage for cut flowers exported from Ethiopia from 5% to 25%, effective May 1st, 2024.

All rose growers are directed to rigorously follow the FCM protocols, establish a crop protection strategy, enhance farm capacity, and implement a systemic approach, among other measures. EAA emphasizes that there will be rigorous controls both on-farm sites and at Bole International Airport.

EHPEA encourages all stakeholders to collaborate in the effort to control FCM, pledging that the relentless endeavor to enhance farm capacity and provide technical assistance for a comprehensive approach to FCM control and monitoring will persist.
