You may take advantage of lower prices by purchasing pesticides or fertilizers in bulk quantities and buying early. Having these products readily available on the farm allows you to make timely pesticide and fertilizer applications.
Storing bulk volumes of chemical products requires an increase in responsibility. That responsibility includes protecting the environment, including drinking water, from contamination. The greater the amount stored, the greater the environmental impact if a holding tank fails. In addition, if you store large volumes of chemicals, you are required to comply with Indiana’s bulk fertilizer and pesticide regulations.
