Ammonium Nitrate

Ammonium Nitrate is a valuable fertilizer that helps produce healthy food for Canadians, but it must be handled responsibly.

The Agricultural Ammonium Nitrate Code of Practice provides best practices for safe and secure ammonium nitrate storage and handling. It was developed in close partnership with industry officials, and parallels existing federal regulation. Through this Code of Practice, agri-retailers who sell ammonium nitrate provide their employees with the training and information to assist in complying with federal security regulations and the industry Code of Practice.
