Reporter learned from the Guangdong Provincial Trade and Industry Bureau, Guangdong Provincial Bureau of Industry in spring and autumn of 2017 organized a centralized sampling inspection of the quality of fertilizers in circulation in 19 cities in Guangdong Province, except Guangzhou and Shenzhen. A total of 1427 samples of 7 types of fertilizer products were taken during the year, of which 96 were unqualified. Among them, there are 35 serious quality problems, 18 general quality problems and 43 minor quality problems. Commodity unqualified items were total nutrients, total nitrogen, available phosphorus, potassium oxide, organic matter, chloride, logo and so on.
Judging from the overall quality of sampling, the passing rate of sampling in 2017 was 93.4%, basically the same as that of 2016 (93.8%), and the passing rate of four consecutive years was above 90%, reflecting that the quality of fertilizers in circulation areas in Guangdong Province remained relatively high . 2.5% of the total number of samples with serious quality problems found during sampling showed that the production and sales of fake and inferior fertilizers still existed. In particular, the qualified rate of fertilizer products produced by enterprises with less advanced production equipment and weaker technological capabilities was lower.
According to the analysis of the quality of producing areas, the pass rate of imported fertilizer is 100%, and the passing rate of domestic fertilizer is 93.1%. The pass rate of fertilizer produced by the manufacturing enterprises in Guangdong Province is 96.2% and the pass rate of fertilizers produced by the manufacturing enterprises outside the province is 91.8%. From the high and low pass rate of goods, imports higher than domestic, Guangdong Province, higher than the province.
According to the quality analysis of sampling areas, the sampling rates of fertilizer sampling in eastern Guangdong, northern Guangdong, eastern Guangdong and western Guangdong were 97.2%, 93.5%, 93.4% and 90.8%, respectively. Most serious unqualified products were found in western Guangdong.
