    Default Anhydrous Ammonia Farm Trailers For Your Farm Needs

    Just got permission to place these custom objects in the forum library. Speciality trailers, such as the ones owned by the Heartland Co-op, are use by farmers to apply nitrogen ferlizer directly to their fields of corn and other crops. They can be found in storage yards of farm supply stores, on the farm, or in the field behind a tractor.

    The uploaded trailers were designed for use in Todd Taylor's Heartland Farm Route currently under development. Route builders can customize the SRV_NH3Trailer.ace if they need to use a custom logo for their route.

    Tried to post this last night but Charter's internet server suffered a crash and burn. Baud rate dropped to zero - no response at all.

    Anhydrous Ammonia??? this is Fertilizer???? I see tank cars up here in NH going to the PSNH power plant that say "Anhydrous Ammonia" or something like that.... I know that stuff is used for cleaning, but I didn't know it also served as a Fertilizer. then agin it's been awhile since i've seen one of the tankers, so I'm probably thinking of something completley different, but I know it has ammonia in it.... any ideas?????

    Ammonia is good for a ton of things. Ferilizer, cleaner, corrosion inhibitor, chemical stuff.


    Just to nitpick, but still trying to be respectful of your experiences, anhydrous ammonia is called that because it isn't pure, it is cut with water. The formula for it in that state, according to what i've seen, is NH4OH, with the extra HOH being the water.
