BEIJING, March 20 (Xinhua) -- China's procuratorates will launch a campaign against counterfeit and substandard agricultural supplies, according to the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) on Tuesday.
The crackdown will target crimes involving fake and poor-quality seeds, pesticides, fertilizer, veterinary drugs, fodder, feed additives and agricultural machinery, the SPP said.
It will focus on areas including rural-urban juncture zones, business and distribution centers for agricultural supplies, as well as breeding and production bases of agricultural products.
The SPP requires local procuratorial organs to give targeted suggestions to relevant authorities in a timely manner to help improve social management in rural areas.
It also demanded coordination between different procuratorial departments to ensure protection of agricultural supply safety and the interests of rural people, as well as cooperation with relevant administrative departments and public security organs in information sharing and testing and authentication.
