BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - With spring planting just around the corner, state Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is issuing a reminder that anhydrous ammonia transfers need approval.

Goehring says dealers must file the proper documentation before transferring the fertilizer from a tanker to a nurse tank in the field.

Written notification should be made to the state Agriculture Department, county commissioners and county emergency managers.

The reason is to ensure that people handling the anhydrous are properly trained and that information is readily available to emergency responders in case of an accident.

There’s no fee, but there is a deadline. Written notification should be made before March 1 for the spring season and prior to Sept. 1 for the fall season.
