Risk assessments have been completed which focus on a number of metals commercial inorganic fertilizer and potential health effects on two key populations: farm families and fertilizer applicators, and effects on the environment. Actual measured data of metals in fertilizer show these products are safe for farm families, applicators and the environment with wide margins of safety for all NPK and nearly all micronutrient products. Policymakers considering the need to set standards or non-nutritive elements in fertilizer should carefully consider the results of these risk assessments.
