Sen. Marshall introduces bill to strengthen the fertilizer industry

Kansas Senator, Roger Marshall, introduced a bill that he says will strengthen domestic fertilizer production.

He calls it the Fertilizer Sustain Act, which stands for Fertilizer Stewardship, Utilization, Sustainability, Technology, Access, Innovation, and Nourishment. The plan calls for designating potash and phosphate as critical minerals, improving access to conservation programs, and permitting reform that would allow domestic production to grow.

The National Corn Growers Association applauds the proposed legislation, saying it would play a role in lowering fertilizer costs.
