19 Jan 2020

Teams from the Directorate General of Agriculture and Livestock in North and South Sharqiyah governorates carried out inspection campaigns on several agricultural supply stores, farms and veterinary clinics in Samad al Shan in Mudhaibi recently.

The campaigns were held as part of the government’s commitment to regulate the use of pesticides and punish violators.

Eng Mohammed bin Nasser al Alawi, assistant director general in the Directorate General of Agriculture and Livestock in North and South Sharqiyah governorates, said that the campaign aims to ensure that farmers adhere to the safety norms. “From safety standards to spraying pesticides on crops when selling in markets, the inspections also focused on preventing storing banned or substandard pesticides.”
