Import / Export of Barley Germplasm

Contributors to this page: ICARDA, Syria (Siham Asaad, Abdulrahman Moukahal).

Barley is a crop under the mandate of ICARDA. It is very important to remember that an International Phytosanitary Certificate is always required for any plant germplasm exchange.

The requirements of countries that request and receive seed from ICARDA Headquarters located in Syria have been collected from the permits granted to ICARDA for exportation of barley experimental seed. The information in this table was updated to May 2009. It indicates specific requirements and the pathogens and pests of which seed should be free when it is sent to a given country.

Please consider that:
