Description: A trade name for a mixture of calcium and ammonium nitrate, both of which are very hygroscopic materials, but calcium nitrate is much more so than the latter. On exposure to excessively damp atmospheric conditions the final result would be a liquid consisting of a solution of both constituents and under subsequent drying conditions the salts would finally crystallize out. This mixture may or may not be very hard. The change, which has taken place, is purely of a physical nature, only the form of the fertilizer material having been altered, and there would be little if any loss in fertilizer value. Reduction of the hard lumps by either grinding or crushing would give a material, which could be distributed in the normal way. See also FERTILIZERS. See also IMDG Code & US CFR.
