The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) approved the Federally Recognized State Managed Phytosanitary (FRSMP, pronounced “free-stamp”) program petition from California for Phytomyza gymnostoma, also known as allium leafminer. With this petition’s approval, California becomes the second state to participate in FRSMP, and allium leafminer becomes the third FRSMP pest.

APHIS established the FRSMP program to promote greater consistency in actions taken against certain plant pests, whether those pests arrive at U.S. ports of entry or are moving interstate. By better harmonizing import and interstate requirements, APHIS strengthens its ability to advocate for safe, fair, and reciprocal treatment of U.S. exports by our trading partners.
