One of the agenda was the discussion on the importation of Nitrate, users of Nitrate, and the role of FPA in monitoring Nitrate which was facilitated by Julieta B. Lansangan, Chief of the Fertilizer Regulations Division (FRD).
It was mentioned that Nitrate, as a fertilizer input, is an integral element in the development of explosives, which needs heightened control and monitoring when being transported, delivered, and mixed as input for industrial and agricultural products.
