Fertilizer and Feeds Bill to register pest control operators

Control of fertilizer movement…..

Parliament is in the process of hearings on the recently tabled Fertilizer and Feeds Bill which proposes a registrar of fertilizer, farm feeds and agricultural remedies and particularly calls for the registration of pest control operators. The Bill will be expensive to operate.

Registration the key

The Bill tabled by the minister of agriculture, goes further in that it says the new structure will “regulate or prohibit the importation, sales, acquisition, disposal or use of fertilizers, farm feeds, agricultural remedies and stock remedies and provide for the designation of technical advisers and analysts.”

The portfolio committee on agriculture, forestry and fisheries will debate the Bill in the light of the hearings.
