The strips measure approximately 3 millimeters in width and meet the dimensional requirements for man-made fiber strips contained in Section XI, Legal Note 1 (g) of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). The “Garden Grower” features a zippered flap, web tie straps at set intervals. It is held in place with plastic tubes and two plastic sandbags (the sand is not included at the time of importation).

The applicable subheading for the “Garden Grower” will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem

Articles classifiable under subheading 6307.90.9989, HTS, which are products of Turkey are currently entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.
