Commentary: Bad reporting causes ‘fear the fertilizer’
Sandia Labs is earning positive publicity by announcing that it isn't going to patent its fertilizer innovation.
Then we are back to the conclusion by the reporter that fertilizing crops with commercial fertilizers is a dangerous proposition that can be avoided. She wrote, “With any luck, it means farmers worldwide will soon be able to fertilize crops without worrying about explosions, too.”
It is like the reporter has read hundreds of reports worldwide about how fertilizer spreaders/applicators have blown up going across the field as AN was being applied.
I think we are headed into a panic period of “fear the fertilizer” by the public, no matter what kind of commercial fertilizer is being stored or applied. We’ll be seeing more of the message from the organic believers that only manure is the true fertilizer that man was meant to use.
