Probers push for ‘strict regulations’ on aerial spraying in Davao

 DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/7 Dec) — The fact-finding team tasked by Mayor
Rodrigo Duterte to assess the impact of aerial spraying here has
pushed for strict regulations in its eight major recommendations on
aerial spraying amid a pending proposal at the city council to ban it.

The team recommended that banana firms must strictly follow health and
safety regulations in the conduct of aerial spraying. Duterte has
earlier described the reports as “severely restrictive bordering on
almost banning aerial spraying.”

Team leader Mario Luis Jacinto said Wednesday the report, sent by the
Office of the City Mayor to the City Council on December 4, was made
in consultation with the stakeholders of the banana industry. Read full story here.
