SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In a final rule effective and published in the Federal Register on October 24, 2005 (70 FR 61351-61362, Docket No. 03-019-3), we amended the provisions of a certification program for articles of Pelargonium spp. and Solanum spp. imported from countries where the bacterium Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 is known to occur.

In the final rule, it was our intention to amend the regulations by amending paragraph (r)(3)(viii) of § 319.37-5 to modify its restrictions on growing media used in production of articles of Pelargonium spp. and Solanum spp. under the certification program. However, our amendatory instruction referred instead to paragraph (r)(3)(vii). This document corrects that error by revising paragraph (r)(3)(viii).
