A statement from the Ministry of Agriculture indicates that however, those manufactured and distributed by KEL Chemicals branded Kelphos Plus, Kelphos gold and NPK 10:26:10 did not meet all required test parameters.

The affected consignment was distributed by KEL Chemical fertilizers between March 5-10.

“Following release of test results by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs), the government has taken decisive action to safeguard the agricultural sector and farmers by announcing the immediate suspension of KEL Chemicals’ operations and seizure of its fertiliser products,” read the statement in part.

It further indicated that the government has further seized and impounded all fertilizer stocks distributed by KEL Chemicals at the National Cereals Produce Board (NCPB) facilities. This step is essential to control and mitigate any adverse effects on agricultural practices.

“The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development strongly advises farmers who have acquired or possess fertilizer from KEL Chemicals to immediately discontinue its use and to visit their nearest NCPB facility for further guidance,” highlighted the statement.
