The Ministry of Municipality and Environment's agricultural quarantine offices have inspected 6,282 imported shipments, weighing nearly 195,000 tonnes from different types of imported agricultural consignments, plant products and production inputs in July across the different customs points.
The quarantine offices destroyed 35 shipments weighing 138 tons for violating the agricultural quarantine law and for certain damages. 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.
