ARA HOSTS EPA TOUR MACA AWARD WINNERS Last month, more than 30 Environmental Protection Agency staff members were hosted on a tour by the Agricultural Retailers Assn (ARA) of Willard Agri-Ser- vice’s facilities located in Lynch, MD. Here, ARAPres/CEO Jack Eberspacher (center) shows some of the group Willard’s state-of-the-art liquid fertil- izer storage and containment system. They witnessed first-hand some of the latest technol- ogy being used by crop input retailers to safeguard the environment through proactive on-site chemical storage, recycling, and containment and security measures. Partici- pants also received an overview about the ag retail and distribution industry, precision agriculture and spray drift reduction technologies. The tour was sponsored by Willard Agri-Service and Syngenta.

The two new facilities are the largest inland urea import terminal and the first phase- modifying urea manufacturing plant in the U.S. The new centers, representing a $20 million invest- ment, are strategically located on a section of the Missis- sippi River that is lock- and ice-free, ensuring year- round access to and from the country’s agricultural heartland by road, rail and river transport. The Urea Center has a storage capacity of 63,000 tons with the ability to turn over its inventory four times a month. The Stabilized Nitrogen Center implements a one-of-a-kind process of phase modification that takes the basic nitrogen commodity and transforms it into an enhanced efficiency nitrogen source.
