AGENCY:

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION:

Interim rule and request for comments.

SUMMARY:

We are amending the golden nematode regulations by removing areas in Orleans, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties in the State of New York from the list of generally infested areas. Surveys and other data have shown that certain areas in these counties are free of golden nematode, and we have determined that regulation of these areas is no longer necessary. As a result of this action, areas in Orleans, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties in the State of New York that have been listed as generally infested will be removed from the list of areas regulated for golden nematode. This action is necessary to relieve restrictions on certain areas that are no longer necessary.

DATES:

This interim rule is effective October 2, 2015. We will consider all comments that we receive on or before December 1, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The golden nematode (Globodera rostochiensis) is a destructive pest of potatoes and other solanaceous plants. Potatoes cannot be economically grown on land that contains large numbers of the nematode. The golden nematode has been determined to occur in the United States only in parts of the State of New York.

In 7 CFR part 301, the golden nematode quarantine regulations (§§ 301.85 through 301.85-10, referred to below as the regulations) set out procedures for determining the areas regulated for golden nematode and impose restrictions on the interstate movement of regulated articles from regulated areas.

Paragraph (a) of § 301.85-2 states that the Deputy Administrator, Plant Protection and Quarantine, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), shall list as regulated areas each quarantined State or each portion thereof in which golden nematode has been found or in which there is reason to believe that golden nematode is present, or which it is deemed necessary to regulate because of their proximity to infestation or their inseparability for quarantine enforcement purposes from infested localities.

Paragraph (b) of § 301.85-2 states that the Deputy Administrator or an authorized inspector may temporarily designate any other premises in a quarantined State as a regulated area and a suppressive or generally infested area, in accordance with the criteria specified in paragraph (a).

Paragraph (c) of § 301.85-2 states that, in accordance with the criteria listed in § 301.852(a), the Deputy Administrator shall terminate the designation of any area listed as a regulated area and suppressive or generally infested area when he or she determines that such designation is no longer required.

Surveys and other data have revealed that certain areas in Orleans, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties of New York are free of golden nematode. Accordingly, on September 17, 2014, APHIS issued a Federal Order [1] to terminate the quarantine designation of specified areas within these three counties, thereby removing 600,524 acres from the golden nematode regulations. As a result, it is no longer necessary to regulate these areas or restrict the interstate movement of golden nematode regulated articles from these areas.

Approximately 509 acres will remain under regulation in Nassau County, 68 acres in Orleans County, and 221,504 acres in Suffolk County. Further analysis continues in each of these counties that may lead to additional acres being eligible to be removed from regulation in the future.

Correction

In an interim rule dated January 9, 2013 (78 FR, 1713-1715, Docket No. APHIS-2012-0079), we amended the golden nematode regulations by removing areas in Livingston and Steuben Counties in New York from the list of generally infested areas. In that rule, the coordinates we used to delineate the revised areas under quarantine were formatted in such a way that they did not accurately represent the areas we wished to lift from restrictions. Therefore, we are publishing the corrected coordinates of the areas remaining under quarantine in Livingston and Steuben Counties in this rule.

Immediate Action

Immediate action is warranted to relieve restrictions that are no longer necessary on the specified areas in Orleans, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties in New York that have been regulated for golden nematode. Under these circumstances, the Administrator has determined that prior notice and opportunity for public comment are contrary to the public interest and that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553 for making this action effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.

We will consider comments we receive during the comment period for this interim rule (see DATES above). After the comment period closes, we will publish another document in the Federal Register. The document will include a discussion of any comments we receive and any amendments we are making to the rule.

Executive Order 12866 and Regulatory Flexibility Act

This interim rule is subject to Executive Order 12866. However, for this action, the Office of Management and Budget has waived its review under Executive Order 12866.

In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, we have analyzed the potential economic effects of this action on small entities. The analysis is summarized below. The full analysis may be viewed on the Regulations.gov Web site (see ADDRESSES above for instructions for accessing Regulations.gov) or obtained from the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

APHIS has removed 600,524 acres from the golden nematode regulations in specific areas in three New York counties: Orleans, Nassau, and Suffolk. Of the areas remaining under regulation, 221,504 acres are in Suffolk County, 509 acres are in Nassau County, and 68 acres are in Orleans County.

Golden nematode is a major pest of potato and other many other solanaceous plants. Sale of many soil-related products is negatively impacted in areas under quarantine for golden nematode. We impose sanitation requirements on movement of agricultural equipment and non-agricultural entities that use earth-moving equipment. The pest is spread by the transport of cysts in soil, in particular through the inadvertent movement of infested soil attached to agricultural products, farming equipment, and other regulated articles.

In 2014, the State of New York harvested 15,800 acres of potatoes valued at approximately $55 million, with Suffolk County being the number one county in potato production. While there are no detailed potato data published by county, 42 entities in Suffolk County have been affected by the deregulation and of these 18 entities are potato growers. One potato farm has been affected by the deregulation in Nassau County. Deregulation of quarantine areas in Orleans County is not known to have affected any entities.

The 43 affected entities will benefit from no longer needing to satisfy compliance requirements of the quarantine. They may also find improved export opportunities. While the potato farmers as well as the rest of the affected entities may qualify as small entities, they are few in number and their share of the nation's potato industry is small. Even though New Start Printed Page 59553York ranks 12th in volume among the States that produce potatoes, the value of its production is only 1.7 percent of the value of all U.S. production.

Under these circumstances, the Administrator of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has determined that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
