Learn Your Anhydrous Ammonia Safety To-Do List

March 30, 2009 07:00 PM

Anne Rippke, Farm Journal Editorial Projects Editor

In an effort to inform anhydrous ammonia applicators about safety precautions, the Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association (IFCA) and Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) created a 12-mintue video for farmers to watch.

The video covers the most common safety errors that can create accidents or releases of anhydrous ammonia. It also is a supplement to the training IFCA provides annually to commercial ag retail employees.

Proceeds from a fee on each ton of agricultural fertilizer sold in Illinois from the Fertilizer Research and Educational Council (FREC) helped pay for the video.

A high-resolution of the video can be viewed at the IFCA website or the IDOA's website. Other organizations can embed the video on their websites free of charge.
