Potatoes imported in Azerbaijan from Russia turned out to be unusable


October 7, Fineko/abc.az. 40 tons of seed potatoes imported in Azerbaijan from Russia by ZE-DENT LLC were inspected by inspectors of the Azerbaijan Food Safety Agency (AQTA).

ABC.AZ was informed at AQTA that as a result of inspections, quarantine pests were found in product samples taken from the cargo lot (Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus - ring rot of tubers).

Since the batch of seed potatoes was recognized by the Agency as unsuitable for use, it was decided to destroy the products.
