Japan amends Standards for normal fertilizers
Under current regulations, the Government of Japan classifies fertilizers containing
“Magnesium Ammonium Phosphate (Struvite)” as “Compound Fertilizer” and has strictly
judged whether their raw materials are adaptable to the official standard.
The Government of Japan will establish a new official standard to register the fertilizer
containing only “ magnesium ammonium phosphate (Struvite)” as “Normal Fertilizer” on the
basis of judgement whether if it conforms to the “Minimum content of main nutrients”
without considering raw materials origin.
