HA NOI -- People must now have certification to use certain plant protection substances.
This is one of the new regulations in the draft law on plant protection and quarantine.
Experts from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said that this was the first time people using limited-use plant protection substances were required to have documentation.
Plant protection substances can sometimes be necessary for agricultural production. If the substances are used properly in a limited time period, they do not have a significant effect on the environment.
To limit the abuse of these substances, which pollutes the environment and affects people's health, farmers should be trained to use them properly and issued certificates when they demonstrate they are able to do so. -- VNS
