ABSTRACT
The article presents a message from the president of the American Bamboo Society. He cites concerns over possible infections associated with U.S. bamboo imports. He says that some people are worried that imported bamboo carry pathogens that can infect other members of the grass family like sugar cane, corn, rice and wheat. He states that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is considering lifting the prohibition on bamboo imports since it encourages bamboo smuggling and provides advantage to the few who hold permits that allow them to import bamboo.
