FQC produces guidelines for bulk fertiliser storage and handling
The Fertiliser Quality Council (FQC) has produced a set of storage and handling guidelines for manufacturers and distributors who deal with bulk fertiliser.
The guidelines, which can also be applied to the storage and handling of fertiliser on-farm, aim to ensure that the physical quality of the product is maintained from when it arrives at the depot (or farm) to the point it is distributed on the land.
The guidelines give tips and advice across several topics including; storage considerations; receiving product; bagging off; blending; segregating product; and transporting fertiliser.
They also provide simple reminders that vehicle decks must be leak free and dry, covers too must be clean and dry so no contamination occurs, and storage warehouses must be weather tight.
Importantly, they encourage everyone involved in the supply chain to take responsibility for maintaining the product quality to ensure that the end-user has a product that is fit for purpose.
