DONG THAP (VNS) — The police and market management officers of Dong Thap Province yesterday seized nearly nine tonnes of fertilizers from a private firm.
The owner of the firm was identified as Luu Quoc Trung, a resident of Cao Lanh City in Dong Thap. Trung was not able to produce any valid papers that showed the place of origin of the fertilizers.
All the fertilizers have been temporarily seized by the authorities.
According to the relevant agencies, the demand for fertilizers among farmers often increases after the Lunar New Year holiday because of the new crop season.
Local authorities have been pushing for increased inspections of places that sell fertilizers in the area to identify those that sell fake or substandard products. — VNS
