Which Fertilizers Are Classified as Hazmat?
Some fertilizers can be dangerous. The most dangerous ones are ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate. Before a carrier can ship fertilizer, they need to know what kind it is.
Hazard Classifications for Shipping Fertilizer
In order to ship fertilizer safely, special care must be taken to ensure that the ammonium nitrate is not exposed to heat or shock. The fertilizer must also be properly labeled and stored in a cool, dry place. By taking these precautions, the risk of fertilizer accidents can be greatly reduced. Before receiving or shipping fertilizer, you should be told what the hazard classifications are. But even if you are told, you are still responsible if something goes wrong with a shipment that is classified in the wrong way. So always double-check to make sure the classification is correct.
