Anhydrous Ammonia: Managing the Risks


More anhydrous ammonia is used as fertilizer in North Dakota than any other nitrogen fertilizer source. Few problems occur when the ammonia is being handled and applied as intended. Most uncontrolled releases are due to improper procedures, careless or untrained workers, or faulty equipment. Wearing protective equipment greatly reduces the chance of injury from an ammonia release. Countless tons of anhydrous ammonia are applied every crop year without problems; safe procedures and good-quality equipment do work. Flickr photo by LandLearn NSW
