Central America Applies Changes to Fertlizer Register

In the context of negotiations on the Central American Customs Union some changes have been agreed that will benefit farmers.

The text of the agreement, which will soon come into force in the countries in the region, certain unnecessary technical requirements have been removed that made the fertilizer register bureaucratic.

"In addition, regulations were incorporated that were needed to prevent soil amendments from being registered as fertilizers. Finally, concepts and parameters were specified to classify low concentration formulas, which do little to improve the region's productivity and are now being sold in various Central American countries," reports La Prensa Libre in its web portal.
