Nonexplosive Ammonium Nitrate

.

Ammonium Nitrate and Diesel fuel was what Tim McVeigh used to blow up Oklahoma City. Just about any 8th grader can make a bomb with a chemistry set.

The perfect mix for lawns. Chemistry behind that is some of the ammonium nitrate is converted to ammonium sulfate, which is a fire ******ant. I have been tempted to buy and try out lab grade ferrous nitrate as a supplement.

I'm glad you didn't say anything negative about mentally challenged fire.

I was a big user of AN back in the golf course days. Now, you have to go through too much BS to bother using it. I don't know how true it is, but I was told at an ag supplier that if I wanted to buy AN, I would be put on a government watch list

Same here..........you have to sign a list of users to purchase it in bulk.
I don't want anyone breathing down my neck because of what fertilizer is used when, where, and why!
