Why did MSD get into the fertilizer business?
Louisville’s biosolids into the landfill is a waste. Biosolids
contain the nutrients that plants – and people – need to
thrive. MSD’s 5-3-0 fertilizer pellets have valuable nutrients
which are missing from some commercial fertilizers.
Biosolids are one of the most studied issues ever regulated by the
US EPA. Decades of studies have shown biosolids can be safely used on
food crops. The National Academy of Sciences says,
"[T]he use of these materials in the production of crops for
human consumption when practiced in accordance with existing federal
guidelines and regulations, presents negligible risk to the consumer,
to crop production and to the environment."
treated biosolids are safer than manure, and are land-applied in all
50 states. Sod farmers, golf greenskeepers and sports-field groundskeepers
have used biosolids to build great turf for decades.
