A twenty member task force was formed in August of 2005 and met five times between Sept, 2005 and Feb., 2006. Members had diverse agricultural backgrounds collectively knowledgeable about soil fertility research, fertilizer sales and management issues, general producer opinions and challenges, and associated policy and rules. The ANTF heard presentations, reviewed a variety of documents, discussed and deliberated information related to their charge in statutes. The meetings were exceptionally well attended (one exception due to adverse weather). Recommendations were thoroughly discussed and determined through an agreed upon procedure at the final meeting.

The Task Force expired June 30, 2006.
