Documentation for fertilizer import permission in the Kingdom

     In Thailand, the use of chemical fertilizers for soil enrichment continues unabated. In 2021, fertilizer importation recorded a total of 5,520,883 tons, a 7.39% increase from 2020, which had a total importation of 5,141,068 tons. This makes the fertilizer industry worth hundreds of billions of Baht per annum.

     The registration process for fertilizers, managed by the Department of Agricultural Extension, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, takes about 8-12 months. There are five types of fertilizers: organic fertilizer, chemical fertilizer, chemical fertilizer with additional trace elements, organic-chemical fertilizer, and biofertilizer.
