Fertilisers

When stored correctly, ammonium nitrate fertiliser is safe. Fertilisers containing less than 20% nitrate are also relatively safe and do not have such strict storage guidance.

However, more than 20% ammonium nitrate fertiliser is of great concern to firefighters when it is involved in fire or contaminated by other things such as fuels and oils.

Storing fertiliser safely
