    Three farming chemicals purchase permits now open

    BANGKOK, 14 June 2019(NNT) - The regulation of Paraquat, Glyphosate, and Chlorpyrifos in agriculture will be effective from 20th October this year. The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives has developed a regulation system for these chemicals where farmers must apply for a chemical purchase permit which requires training and tests.


    The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives’ (MOAC) Permanent Secretary Anan Suwannarat has invited farmers who wish to use Paraquat, Glyphosate, and Chlorpyrifos to register themselves with the Department of Agricultural Extension and apply for the chemicals purchase permit from today as part of the usage control regulation program covering these three chemicals to ensure safety.


    As part of the program, the Department of Agricultural Extension will provide the necessary training for tapioca, corn, oil palm, fruit, grains, and flower farmers, while the Rubber Authority of Thailand will provide the necessary training and examinations for rubber farmers, while the Office of the Cane and Sugar Board will provide training for cane farmers. Officials from the three agencies will receive training from the Department of Agriculture, and will further train chemical sprayers and local officials such as village headmen and sub district administrative organizations’ permanent secretaries.


    Farmers can register and apply for the chemicals purchase permit on chem.doae.go.th website, Farmbook application, or at any district agricultural office. They can choose to receive training via the E-learning system, or apply to sit for the examination directly. Applicants who fail their first examination can retake the examination on one more occasion. It is expected some 1 million farmers will apply to qualify in this program.

    How long before those who took the time to get the permit supply the others for a profit?

    So. Is that going to change things? So, one farmer registers and then he obtains a permit but uses that permit to buy chemicals for someone who doesn't have a permit. And so life goes on.
