Kildare fertiliser deliveries
Published 08/03/2011 | 11:44
The Farming Independent was contacted by Glanbia regarding an article published in the February 22 edition on the sale of a consignment of fertiliser by the company to a group of tillage farmers in north Kildare.
The Farming Independent accepts that the word 'recall', as used in the headline, was inaccurate given that it typically infers safety or substandard quality concerns -- which we accept was not the case.
In this instance, the incorrect product was delivered and immediately replaced by Glanbia.
In addition, the article reported that the fertiliser was prilled CAN rather than granulated product.
This was not correct as the product was granular CAN.
