Residents raise concerns over chemicals
About three dozen people came out to a meeting that typically only draws a handful last week to talk the pros and cons of an agronomy center that has been proposed near the crossroads east of Hazen.
The application had been placed by Enerbase Agronomy, which currently operates agronomy centers elsewhere, including in Washburn. The 30-acre parcel of land is located within the north half of the northeast quarter of Section 14, Township 144 north range 86 west. Enerbase’s application included details noting the business would sell typical fertilizers used in the area, as well as hopper bins, grain conveyors, NH3 tanks, bulk and bagged seed.
