When talking to farmers throughout the year, the topic of liquid fertilizer storage is one that gets discussed. Liquid fertilizer can be stored on farm quite easily and efficiently. Storage tanks come in all sizes from a few thousand liters to over 300,000 liters. The most popular are poly tanks and stainless steel tanks. Liquid fertilizer can be delivered direct to farm with Super B loads during the year but a real benefit to having on farm storage is to be able to take advantage of historically lower fall pricing. Liquid fertilizer stored overwinter is circulated and/or bubbled with air early in the spring when the temperatures warm up. This brings the product back into a homogeneous state and is then ready for spring application.
