OTTAWA -- Fertilizer Canada has a newly-updated educational manual and video to provide more recent and comprehensive information for framers needing to renew their training on the safe handling of anhydrous ammonia fertilizer.
The best part -- it's free!
Anhydrous ammonia fertilizer is a key source of nitrogen used by farmers across Canada to improve crop yields. It's safe to work with ..... when stored, transported, and handled properly.
To that end, Fertilizer Canada is offering its members the training resources to help reduce the opportunity for negative incidents.
"Fertilizer Canada President and CEO, Garth Whyte, says the organization is committed to providing relevant training materials to ensure the safe and secure use of fertilizer at all levels of the supply chain.
"Anhydrous ammonia is a highly effective fertilizer that helps farmers feed our growing population and replenish nutrients in the soil. Farmers who rely on anhydrous ammonia will now have the most up-to-date information on the safe and secure handling of the product through these updated materials."
Fertilizer Canada and its members are certified through three Codes of Practice. Compliance with these Codes (covering anhydrous ammonia, ammonium nitrate and calcium ammonium nitrate) is mandatory for Fertilizer Canada members.
Farmers interested in getting up-to-date safety training can find the Anhydrous Ammonia Safety & the Farmer video and training manual for free at fertilizercanada.ca.
