Cambodia Temporarily Bans Import of Herbicides

The Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (MAFF) has issued an announcement to temporarily ban the import and distribution of all kinds of herbicides.

The measure was taken after poisoning cases were reported in Sre Non village, Kantuot commune, Chetr Borei district, Kratie province, and following an intensive investigation, the poisoning was caused by contaminated water.

The MAFF also ordered its line departments to conduct investigation, control and advise people about the effective and safe use of herbicides, added the announcement signed late last week by Minister of MAFF H.E. Veng Sakhon.
