Korean and U.S. quarantine authorities have agreed on exports of fresh ginseng to the United States and imports of grapefruit from Texas, the government said Sunday.

The Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency began talks with its U.S. counterpart in 2017 for shipments of fresh ginseng produced in areas designated by the government, the agency said in a statement.

They also started talks to 안전 import Texas grapefruits in 2019 and reached an agreement on disease and insect control measures in March
