Security, Storage and FIAS
How to Store Your Fertiliser
Your fertiliser should be stored in clean, dry and ventilated warehouses, in stacks comprising no more than 12 layers (bags up to 50 kg); or in the case of big bags up to 600 kg – 2 layers. It should not be stored under open-sided shelters and in open space.
Ammonium Nitrate should be protected against:
water and precipitation
mechanical damage to packaging
heating over 30°C.
Keep your Fertiliser Secure and out of Sight
Fertilisers containing Urea, Ammonium Nitrate, and CAN have all been used by terrorists.
Please keep these fertilisers securely on your farm.
Growers are encouraged to adopt the advice on 5 Point Plan aimed at securing fertiliser on farm.
