REAP investigating facts regarding supply of infected rice to Russia
KARACHI, MARCH 15 (APP) - Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan (REAP) has been contacting Pakistani Embassy in Moscow and Russian Embassy in Pakistan to find out the facts regarding the supply of infected rice to Russia.

This was stated by the chairman REAP Abdul Aziz Maniya here Thursday. He said that MINFAL was also in contact with Russian authorities to resolved the matter. It is too early to make comments on this issue as we are still inquiring about this.

However, Maniya said that the pest they (Russians) are talking about in found in wheat crop and not in rice. Some 20,000 metric tons of IRRI rice was exported to Russia last year, he added.

Market sources said that Russian inspection authorities had lodged complaint with the concerned authorities two months ago about the presence of pest Khapra beetle in some rice shipments despatched from Pakistan.

The information was communicated to REAP a bit late, they added.

Russian animal and plant health authority has threatened to impose ban on Pakistani rice from March 19 due to presence of “Khapra beetle” pest.

Sources said that REAP managing committee has decided to take action against the exporters if they are found guilty of despatching infected rice to Russia.

This shipment was later, diverted to Sri Lanka and sold there, source added.

The sources underlined the need for providing latest farm technology to growers so they can control this pest at the time of production and harvesting. The milling cannot detach this pest from the rice once it is acquired at production and harvesting stage, they noted.
