In Mexico, the Federal Government has a Directorate-General for Plant Health under the National Health, Food Safety and Quality Service (SENASICA). Pursuant to the Federal Plant Health Act, it implements phytosanitary programs and campaigns to prevent the introduction or spread of pests that may affect plants, their products and the by-products of domestic agriculture, and to improve or preserve phytosanitary status in agricultural production.
Continuous epidemiological surveillance is carried out to detect and update the phytosanitary status of pests that are regulated and those that pose a threat to domestic agriculture.
These phytosanitary campaigns restrict, control and prevent the spread of pests throughout Mexico, and include strategies for Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Similarly, phytosanitary programs are implemented to improve the competitiveness of crops by ensuring the phytosanitary quality of plant products, with regard to the regulated pests that threaten crops in the Product System. Producers on Plant Health State Committees and Local Boards throughout the country are involved in these programs. They manage the resources granted and implement them through trained technical staff.
As a representative example of Integrated Pest Management, we will present the program to combat Huanglongbing (HLB), the citrus greening disease found in Mexico, describing the program's content and results.
