Reminder: Know Your Customers on Any Sale of Fuel, Fertilizer or Crop Protection Products

Earlier this spring, one of our members received a phone call from an unknown individual requesting to purchase fertilizer over the phone. The individual in question wanted to purchase a rather large amount of fertilizer and was willing to provide payment over the phone.  This individual would not provide any details on the intended use and made several follow-up phone calls trying to convince the Ag retailer to sell him the fertilizer. If you do receive any suspicious phone calls requesting the purchase of fuel, fertilizer, or crop protection products, document any requests and contact your local law enforcement.
