NORTH ILOILO | July 6, 2022 – FPA Regional Field Unit (RFU) VI inspected one dealer, two area distributors and three warehouses, 30 fertilizer products and 90 pesticide products during their Clean-Up Drive (CUD) Operations last June 28-30, 2022.


Bacphil Planters Products, Model Agro Sales, RZ JR Agri Trading, and 3A Agricultural and Poultry Supply were found compliant with the FPA standards and have valid registrations and licenses with FPA.


FPA advised the said handlers to improve their operations by acquiring new weighing scales and reporting any discrepancies to FPA. They were also asked to revise their inventory list to include the product registration number.


FPA Team also reminded the store clerks and warehouse managers of the importance of FPA registration. They explained that the registration will ensure the quality of the products and its effectiveness in targeted crops (Blue Book, 2020).


To make sure that the handlers and end-users are availing FPA-registered agricultural products, the team also taught the handlers how to navigate around the FPA website where a list of FPA-registered products and accredited handlers are posted.


The CUD Operation was initiated by Regional Officer (RO) Noel Negre, along with Provincial Officers (PO) Raymond Alfor, Ryan Gelladula, and Emanuel Barrida. ###
