#1 Revocation of Itchan Fertilizer Manufacturing's LTO and CPR

Please be advised that the License to Operate (LTO) and Certificates of Product Registration (CPRs) of Itchan Fertlizer Manufacturing, manufacturer of the product Xian-Bee Complete 14-14-14 Granular, have been revoked due to violations of Presidential Decree No. 1144.

Through the continuous monitoring of our Regional Field Units (RFUs), it has been confirmed that the aforementioned product does not conform to the standards based on its guaranteed analysis, making it off-specifications. However, despite the issued suspension order, it has been confirmed that the company has continued production and distribution of its product via online and direct selling to farmers.

As we continue to address these issues concerning the fertilizer industry, we would like to remind the public to always buy fertilizer and pesticide products from duly licensed FPA dealers to ensure that the products you buy conform to the standards.

Further, we also encourage the public to report to us those individuals or groups who sell fertilizer and pesticide products without appropriate licenses to operate as fertilizer product handlers, and those selling unregistered, fake or off-specification fertilizers, and together, let us combat these illegal acts for the benefit of the whole industry.

#3 Proliferation of fertilizers with dubious packaging

In response to the proliferation of alleged fake fertilizers in the Philippines, the Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) conducted intensified monitoring through its Regional Field Units (RFUs).

Pursuant to a report from our RFU from Region II that multiple 50kg sacks of the products Philphos Ammonium Phosphate and Philphos 14-14-14 with registration nos. 1-1IF-7464 and 1-1LF-013, respectively, with dubious packaging, were seen proliferating in the market, this Office ordered the collection of samples thereof for laboratory analysis.

Based on the results of the laboratory analysis conducted by our Laboratory Services Division (LSD), the products did not meet the standard based on their guaranteed analysis. As such, the company was informed about the actions conducted by this Office and was given an opportunity to explain. The company denied involvement on the said products with dubious packaging and informed this Office that it did not supply the same.

Hence, in the spirit of public service, this Office humbly requests the public to refrain from patronizing the abovementioned products and report any movement of these products to help combat their proliferation. Moreover, let this be a reminder for the public to be vigilant on these products.
