Iowa based AgVantage FS, a company that provides agronomy products and services, has been awarded by receiving certification from The ResponsibleAg Certification Program.

According to their website ResponsibleAg is “a non-profit organization founded in 2014 to promote the public welfare by assisting agribusinesses as they seek to comply with federal environmental, health, safety and security rules regarding the safe handling and storage of fertilizer products. The organization provides participating businesses a federal regulatory compliance audit relating to the safe storage and handling of fertilizers, recommendations for corrective action where needed and a robust suite of resources to assist in this regard.”

The ResponsibleAg Certification Program is the only program in the nation that provides a voluntary comprehensive assessment of agricultural facilities that store and handle farm input supplies such as fertilizer, crop protection products, seed, and fuel. This certification requires that a facility meet stringent criteria. implement industry-leading safety and security measures and make safety one of its top priorities. Participation in the ResponsibleAg Certification Program is voluntary.
