BOHOL | July 20, 2022 – FPA Regional Officer (RO) Arnulfo Arausa Jr. and Provincial Officer (PO) Andy Cornell Bornillo conducted random fertilizer sampling at the Department of Agriculture – Agriculture Program Coordinating Office (DA-APCO) last July 15, 2022.


The samples were sent last July 18, 2022 to the FPA Analytical Services Laboratory in Quezon City for NPK and moisture content analyses.


In order to identify whether the fertilizer samples submitted pass the standards, the permissible minimum tolerance of each of the guaranteed nutrient should not be less than 98% and the moisture content should not exceed 2% (Fertilizer Regulatory Policies and Implementing Guidelines).


The fertilizers collected were under the 2022 Community Hybrid Farming Project and the 2022 Corn Project of the Department of Agriculture.


The results are expected to be released within 20 working days from receipt of the sample. ###
