Does anyone have on-farm dry fertilizer storage?

What type of storage do you have? Pole building, cone bottom tank, etc? How long have you stored it?

Epoxy lined hopper bin with poke access on bottom. Preferably a bin without a fan.

Did you put on the epoxy or did you buy them that way?

I have two meridian cone bins, each hold 120 ton. Works great, I buy direct from the river and use an old Westfield auger to fill them.

How long do you store the fertilizer? Have you ever had trouble with it getting hard in the bottom of the bin?

I will typically fill late summer and spread in the fall, I have not had any trouble with bridging, but there is an access door to poke the clump if needed

Bought bin factory lined. Try not to store urea over 6 months during winter months. Put bag of floor dry in first ton in bin bottom plus a bag for every 25 ton stored.
