The Ministry of Municipality and Environment's agricultural quarantine offices have destroyed 59 consignments, weighing more than 64 tonnes, for violating the agricultural quarantine law.
The agricultural quarantine offices inspected 6,546 imported agricultural consignments, including plant products, in August across the different customs points.
The agricultural quarantine is a first line of defence for protection from agricultural infections.
The preventive procedure aims to protect the country's agricultural wealth from foreign pests.
It also provides that all plants, agricultural products and any other materials shall be subject to phytosanitary regulations to ensure that they are in conformity with the conditions and specifications.
