Promulgation—Establishing quarantine.

The disease anthracnose of lentils (caused by the plant pathogen Colletotrichum truncatum (Schwein)) is potentially devastating to the Washington lentil crop. The disease has become established in central Canada and contiguous lentil growing areas of North Dakota and South Dakota, all of which produce lentil varieties grown in Washington. Anthracnose of lentils is a seed borne disease. In order to prevent its introduction, the director, under authority provided in chapter 17.24 RCW, establishes a quarantine.
