RESTRICTION OF IMPORTATION OF ORANGES
07/06/14
The Ministry of Agriculture informs the general public that restriction on the importation of oranges includes all types of sweet oranges (navels, valencia, naartjies, mineola). This new development is necessitated by the increased local production of other sweet oranges namely naartjies and mineola. The restrictions, therefore help local produce to enter the market.

This new development is necessitated by the increased local production of other sweet oranges namely naartjies and mineola. The restrictions, therefore help local produce to enter the market. The estimated local produce of oranges currently stands at 5 691 tons of ordinary oranges, 56 tons mineola and 45,5tons naartjies. Local farmers are reporting low volumes of sale despite the good quality of their oranges due to influx of imports. The Botswana Horticulture Market has to date discarded 342 bags of the 452 bags of soft oranges that were supplied by local farmers indicating low sales. The public is further informed that the plant protection permit (phytosanitary) is required for all plant materials brought into the country irrespective of the intended use, as this permit is purely for diseases and pests control purposes. Traders or individuals should note that this permit does not substitute the import permit . For any further clarity contact District Agricultural Offices or the Department of Agribusiness Promotion – Marketing Division at 3689708. Or Call Centre 17755 Thank you
