ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR | July 8, 2022 – To ensure that fertilizer and pesticide handlers are following the FPA protocols, Provincial Officer (PO) Michael Tuico inspected a Distributor with warehouses and 3 Dealers in Molave and Midsalip, Zamboanga del Sur last July 5 and 6.


Based on the monitoring activities conducted, there were no violations detected and the establishments are compliant to the provisions of PD 1144 and its IRR.


The activity is anchored to the Agency’s mandate to “assure adequate supplies of fertilizer and pesticide at reasonable prices” (Presidential Decree 1144).


“It is important that the handlers adhere to FPA standards and guidelines especially on good housekeeping and proper product storage. This will ensure that our farmers will get high quality fertilizers and pesticides in an affordable price,” PO Tuico said. ###
