A free flyer has been produced by the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) to help inform the farming customers of its Members on new rules for ammonium nitrate fertilisers from this October.

The downloadable A5 resource can be printed and displayed or offered to farmers and growers to raise awareness of the new legal requirement to provide photo ID when ordering AN fertilisers from 1 October 2023.

It comes after the Home Office amended the Control of Poisons and Explosives Precursors Regulations 2023 to introduce new substances to the lists of regulated explosives precursors and poisons, including AN with a nitrogen content of 16% or higher.

This applies to compounds, blends and mixtures such as NPK fertiliser containing ammonium nitrate above the nitrogen content threshold.
