What is China mailing unsolicited seeds to Vermonters? - Vermont Daily

Vermonters are receiving unsolicited, unidentifiable packets of seeds from China. Vermont Ag officials call it “agricultural smuggling” and warn Vermonters to not plant them.

“At this time, it is unknown what types of seeds are being delivered. There is concern that if germinated they could wreak havoc on the environment, displace or destroy native plants and insects or disease could severely damage crops. Taking steps to prevent introduction is the most effective method of reducing both the risk of invasive species infestations and the cost to control and mitigate those infestations."
