CAMARINES SUR | February 28, 2023 – Five (5) out of 53 fertilizer and pesticide dealers were issued with Notice of Violations (NoVs) during the Clean-Up Drive (CUD) operation on February 21-23, 2023, in the province of Camarines Sur.


FPA Bicol Region required the violators to attend the Accredited Safety Dispenser (ASD) training this coming March as a pre-requisite to secure a License to Operate (LTO).


Meanwhile, compliant dealers were commended and warned not to purchase products from companies with suspension orders.


In addition, the team conducted an inspection and random weighing of the Accredited Merchants for the Fertilizer Discount Voucher (FDV) program of the Department of Agriculture – National Rice Program to ensure the quality of fertilizers being distributed. FDV program covers subsidies for eligible beneficiaries to ensure quality rice production and food security.


The team is closely coordinating with the DA-RFO5 Rice Program for the implementation of FDV.


Regional Officer (RO) Gabriel B. Atole led the inspection together with Provincial Officers (PO) Christopher Nuñez, Cris Legaspi, Winsor Nueva, Rodny Conda, and Ardon RyanNee-Estuye. ###
