The Ministry of Municipality and Environment’s agricultural quarantine offices have inspected 6,382 imported shipments, weighing 96,874 tonnes from different types of agricultural consignments, plant products at different customs posts.
The quarantine offices destroyed 79 shipments weighing 71 tonnes for violating the agricultural quarantine law and for being damaged.
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-originated pests.
It also requires that all plants, agricultural products and any other materials shall be subject to phytosanitary regulations for its procedures and to ensure that other agricultural production inputs are in conformity with the conditions and specifications.
