Argentina: Ag exports stopped by strike in the Senasa

Agricultural exports, including the pear and apple that could finally be shipped to Brazil after the lifting of the ban, were stopped until Thursday 16 because of a 10-day strike launched by the Association of State Workers (ATE) of the National Health Service and Food Quality (Senasa).


The strike started yesterday and it is affecting shipments abroad as well as inter-jurisdictional transfers of agricultural and food producers, since the agency is responsible for ensuring the safety of food shipped across the country.


Movements of products from farms to markets, from Hub markets to cold storage facilities, the operation of refrigerators, phytosanitary control in different regions, checkpoints in the roads and at the airports are among the activities affected by the strike.


Additionally, trade will also be affected between Friday 10 and Sunday 12, and between Thursday 16 and Sunday 19 by the strike announced by Customs workers, who are demanding the 27.8% wage increases ordered by the Government in May for the UPCN staff be extended.

ATE-Senasa blamed the extensive strike on the authorities of the state body, chaired by Diana Guillen, because they hadn't tried to solve any of the claims made by workers, even when the compulsory conciliation issued by the Ministry of Labour in late May was in force, when the union was on strike for 96 hours.


Additionally, ATE-Senasa rejected the attempt by the "Ministry of Labour to re-impose compulsory arbitration when all terms expired. It is unfair, it is not valid because it is issued again for the same conflict," the union stated when ratifying the strike until the end of Wednesday 15.


Besides demanding a 40% wage increase, ATE-Senasa demanded equal pay for Senasa agents that carry out similar tasks to agents in other agencies (such as Customs, AFIP, Migration, INTA), despite being permanent staff; additional recognition because of an unfavorable area, additional payments per function to the workers hired under Article 9, and the implementation of a time schedule for the workers at the borders.


The producers of fruit from Rio Negro Valley were the first to publicly express concern about the extensive strike, which, after three months of the export ban imposed on pears and apples by Brazil, were getting ready to normalize shipments of these fruits so as to revert the strong crisis in the regional economy.


Argentina's Chamber of Integrated Fruit Growers (CAFI) stressed: "This virtual standstill in exports aggravates the current bleak picture of the apple and pear production and exporting sector in a year when exports have decreased by more than 120,000 tons." They also stated that, since they were unable to export their products, they were losing 1,500 tons of fruit every day of the strike.

Peru: Senasa certifies avocado packing facilities with low phytosanitary risks

The National Agrarian Health Service (SENASA) accelerated the certification process of Hass avocado cargo for export, through the certification of its packing plants located in the four agricultural exporting regions of Peru (Ancash, Ica, La Libertad, and Lima).

The certification system that Senasa was able to implement is based on phytosanitary risk profiles, in which Senasa carried out an audit of the packer's packaging processes and admitted the ones that had a good phytosanitary performance.

The president of the Hass Avocado Producers Association of Peru (ProHass), Daniel Bustamante, said that this had been a long but satisfactory process. He stressed that not all of the companies certified were associated with Prohass. "It is a boost for the producers, a recognition that comes with a responsibility to improve quality standards. This vote of confidence of Senasa tells us that we should not lower our guard."

In turn, the director of the Subdirectorate of Plant Quarantine of Senasa, Orlando Dolores, said that, in coordination with ProHass and the representatives of the avocado packing plants, they had established a procedure to facilitate agricultural exports. "We value the commitment to comply with the standard and to be strict in the certification process, which will improve as trade changes."

The optimization is based on a reduction of the sample size for inspection, the shipment of containers during night time, a reduction of the sealing requirements for the trucks that move the fruit to the packing facilities, and, in some cases, preparing the sample for official inspection.

For the past three years, Senasa has had an internal electronic certification system, which permits it to receive export requests in a virtual way, and allows inspectors located in the packing facilities to inspect the cargo and issue the Phytosanitary Certificate immediately. Based on this work design, Senasa has managed to reduce the certification process time to 24 hours.

This is just the beginning, as Senasa will soon implement this procedure for mango and grape packing facilities. To do this, Senasa officials will meet with the representatives of the packers in the next weeks, prior to the start of the export season.


Costa Rica: Senasa reestablishes pineapple planting in the northern area

The National Animal Health Service (Senasa) will reestablish pineapple cultivation in several villages in the northern part of the country today, October 26, after a 90-day moratorium that was imposed due to the strong increase in the population of the stable fly pest, which develops in crop residues, including those of that fruit, and which attacks the livestock.


The Pital Cattlemen's Commission publicly complained against this action because, according to them, pineapple producers did not respect the orders of Senasa and, in general, of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), and the population of flies did not diminish.


This organization represents agricultural producers affected by the planting and large scale production of pineapples.


The stable fly is an insect that feeds on the blood of animals. That's why it attacks livestock and causes performance issues, both in milk and in meat.


The Senasa issued two prohibitions by means of decrees stating that producers couldn't cut down pineapple plants, in both cases by 90 days. This prohibitions prevented them from re-planting or planting new plants in the farms in the affected areas.


The first prohibition was published within La Gaceta on June 1 and it affected the Cutris District of the Canton of San Carlos de Alajuela and the town of San Rafael de Rio Cuarto de Alajuela and its validity has already expired.


The second decree was also published in La Gaceta on July 24 of this year and it will be valid until October 24, according to Senasa. This decree affected the district of Pital del Canton de San Carlos de Alajuela, which includes, among others, the towns of Los Angeles, Boca Sahino, Boca Tapada, Boca Tres Amigos, Cabra, Canacas, Caño Chu, Cerro Blanco (San Marcos), Cuatro Esquinas, Chaparron, Chirivico (Coopeisabel), Encanto, Fama (Carmen), Flor, I Greiga, Josefina, Legua, Ojoche, Ojochito, Palmar, Piedra Alegre, Puerto Escondido, Quebrada Grande, Sahino, San Luis, Santa Elena, Tigre, Trinchera, Vegas, Veracruz, Vuelta Bolson (part), Vuelta Tablon, and Yucatan.

The purpose of these prohibitions was to prevent the stubble or plant residue, especially the fruit crown and leaves, from remaining in the fields and becoming a host for the development of the fly.


However, that ban caused delays in the crop cycle of that fruit and will generate estimated losses of 9.5 million 12 kg boxes for the 2018 harvest, which implies about $52 million, stated Abel Chaves, president of the National Chamber of Producers and Exporters of Pineapple (Canapep), when the second prohibition was established.


In addition, this chamber calculates that in 2019 there will be a reduction in the production of 4.5 million boxes of 12 kilos, with a value of $25 million.


An on-going problem

Pineapple growers, especially large ones, did not comply with the orders of the MAG and, therefore, the population of the fly remains very high, stated Alvaro Alvarez, the president of Pital's Cattlemen Commission.


The leader said that the pineapple producers didn't respect the MAG nor the Senasa (an entity belonging to the MAG) and that they were analyzing if they should sue the State for breach of its work.


Meanwhile the director of Senasa, Bernardo Jaen, said that the pineapple producers generally complied with the recommendations, that the number of flies had been reduced to manageable levels and that, therefore, there were no valid reasons to extend the prohibitions.


Jaen said he understood the frustration of cattlemen, as they had been fighting this problem for more than 20 years, but stressed that this government was the first one to temporarily ban demolitions on plantations and that their decision not to extend it was based on technical reports by Senasa staff who had visited the affected areas and farms.


The head of Senasa also said this would continue to be a recurring problem that would require permanent vigilance, as it was impossible to completely eradicate the stable fly.



Airfreight to United States and England

Argentina: Senasa certified almost 1,000 tons of blueberries from Tucuman for export

The National Health and Agricultural Food Quality Service (Senasa) supervised and certified the export, by air, of almost 1,000 tons of blueberries from Tucuman to the United States and England in the 2017/18 campaign. Of that total, 946,678 kilograms went to Miami, Orlando, and New York, while 15,622 went to England.


The US Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA-Aphis) established a treatment protocol for the export of fresh blueberries, which is done with methyl bromide at 15,6° C and benefits the final quality of the product at destination.


According to the United States phytosanitary requirements and the work plan agreed upon between Senasa and Aphis, the blueberry receives a pre-shipment authorization after being treated with methyl bromide. To do this, the chambers of the fumigation centers must be authorized by Senasa and Aphis, and the fruit must be treated under the inspection of an agent of the National Organism.


All phytosanitary procedures are working normally and at the request of the interested parties. It is important to note that sometimes there are some inconveniences, which we overcome, to load the planes on time and form, said the Regional Director of Senasa NOA Sur, Carlos Grignola.


There are 11 authorized fumigation centers that have a total of 17 bromination chambers in Tucuman. In addition, the Export Agency has approved 26 packages.


Senasa is in charge of the phytosanitary certification of blueberries, and controlling the strict compliance with the work plan agreed with the Aphis.


Senasa developed a monitoring network in Tucuman which uses 25 glue delta traps in the blueberry production area to detect the presence of the plague commonly known as the grapevine moth. Technicians of the Agency control them regularly, always with negative results.


Even though Argentina is free of Lobesia botrana in blueberries, they maintain their certification through regular checks. "The public sector and the private sector are equally responsible for maintaining the country free from Lobesia," said Carlos Grignola.
