CHEMICAL UPDATE: Fertilizer/Pesticide Combinations Perhaps the biggest (and most obvious) advantage of combination products is that you can fertilize and control pests with a single application. This is extremely efficient, but you must ensure that you find a product that matches your management strategy with both the fertilizer and the pesticide. Rinsate: Rinse water from pesticide or fertilizer tank cleaning. Secondary containment: Impermeable floor and walls around a chemical storage area that minimize the amount of chemical seeping into the ground from a spill or Size: 81KB. ) to promote the adoption of Best Management Practices to protect groundwater. The Act calls for mandatory fertilizer and pesticide containment if certain thresholds are exceeded. Operators of these facilities can further reduce the potential for ground-water contamination by adopting BMPs for chemical containment and minimization. Those File Size: KB.

The pesticide container, pesticide injection unit, and all connections between them must be located in secondary containment.

Checklist: Fertilizer Storage Store fertilizers separate from other chemicals in dry conditions. Extra care needs to be given to concentrate stock solutions. Secondary containment should be used. Provide pallets to keep large drums or bags off the floor. Shelves for smaller containers should have a lip to keep the containers from sliding off easily. Secondary containment is achieved by means of sumps. Doors are self closing and can be locked. The walls have air vents or ventilation fans for improved circulation and relief of gaseous vapor build up. Generally the capacities of the HMS buildings vary from five to forty 55 gallon capacity drums. (2) Construction of a New Pesticide Storage. Facts on Pesticides and Fertilizers in Farming (Facts on Series) Library Binding – March 1, The pesticide-herbicide-fertilizer problem is explained fairly well, but no viable alternatives (other than abandoning their use) are offered.

They decide what fertilizers to Akse on certain rops. e They study the soil out what crops were planted in th field last year. Often they send plant samples to a laboratory to be sure the right fertilizer is being used.
