Four government departments: crack down on fertilizer counterfeiting and price fraud

To require relevant authorities to carry out tight crackdown on illegal acts of fertilizer counterfeiting, price fraud and price collusion, four government organs, namely, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and State Administration for Market Regulation, released the Notice on Ensuring Production, Supply and Price Stability of Spring Fertilizer.

It is required in the Notice to enhance the supervision over the markets of agricultural assets, regulate the order of production and operation, and severely fight against manufacture and sale of counterfeit and fake fertilizer and price cheating.
