<p>Preserve the quality of fertilizers longer <br></p>

Storage conditions are key for keeping the best quality of granulated fertilizers until the next application season. Check if you store your fertilizers properly!

Use this checklist to determine how securely your fertilizer is being handled:

  • Protect fertilizers from sources of heat
  • Protect fertilizers from damp and water
  • Protect equipment and ground from corrosion
  • Avoid overloading and keep aisles and access clear
  • Loose fertilizer stored in steep heaps should be removed from top to bottom
  • Keep fertilizers containing more than 28 % N away from direct sunlight
  • Stack big bags and pallets safely
  • Take care when transferring from big bag to dispenser
  • Adhere to safety guidelines at all times
  • Prevent unauthorized access to fertilizer storage facilities
  • Ensure that accompanying papers are affixed to storage containers
  • Always dispose of empty fertilizer packages in accordance with local regulations

Always store fertilizers in a dry and clean place. For all storage boxes whose bottoms are not 100 % watertight, Borealis L.A.T recommends using Absodan or Terraperl - formerly Terramol - (sold by IMERYS Absorbent – formerly Damolin) as bedding. Spreading 1 – 2 kg of this material per m² helps keep bags dry.
