Exporters plead with Gulf countries to delay Jordan vegetable ban

Core Tip: Farmers and exporters on Sunday urged the Gulf countries which imposed a ban on the imports of Jordanian vegetables to delay the starting date of the decision.
Farmers and exporters on Sunday urged the Gulf countries which imposed a ban on the imports of Jordanian vegetables to delay the starting date of the decision.

They said the agricultural sector needs additional time to adjust to the new requirements and standards.

The appeal of the agricultural sector’s representatives, announced during a press conference, comes in light of a new decision by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other Gulf countries to stop the import of several types of vegetables from Jordan for allegedly containing high pesticides residues.

The ministry of climate change and environment in the UAE announced a decision late last month to indefinitely ban the import of seven of Jordan’s main vegetable exports as of mid-May due to increasing levels of chemical pesticide residues found in Jordanian agricultural products.

The banned vegetables include all types of zucchini, sweet pepper, eggplant, cabbage, green beans, cauliflower and lettuce.
