Iran blames Chinese fertilizers as the source of pollution of some agricultural products

Monday, 31 December 2012

According to an announcement by the Majlis Agricultural Committee, one of the reasons for the pollution that was discovered in some Iranian agricultural products is the expired Chinese fertilizer that had been sold to Iran. He emphasized that the large-scale import of fertilizer from China not only resulted in the bankruptcy of Iranian fertilizer plants, but also resulted in some of the agricultural products being fertilized by unhealthy Chinese products that had expired. The official further stated that the Iranian Minister of Agriculture would soon be summoned by the Committee.
