Benguet Governor Melchor Diclas has lifted the ban on the entry of chicken dung into the province.
The Benguet politiko earlier prohibited the entry of chicken dung due to the Avian flu outbreak.
Diclas said chicken dung will be allowed to enter through designated cargo lanes at quarantine checkpoints.
He explained chicken dung is a farm input.
But Diclas also said chicken dung from Nueva Ecija will not be allowed entry.
There is still Avian flu in Nueva Ecjia.
“Even if they have contained the avian flu, we have to be careful that it will not reach our province because there are a lot of poultry farmers here,” Diclas said.
