The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its standard for operating mobile liquid and slurry tanks. The standard, ASAE S317.1 JAN2020 “Improving Safety on Enclosed Mobile Tanks for Transporting and Spreading Agricultural Liquids and Slurry,” provides a guide for uniform practice and is intended to reduce risk of personal and public injury during normal servicing and operation of enclosed mobile tanks for transporting and spreading liquids and slurry. Originally developed in 1968, the revision updated key reference documents and made clarifications within the standard.
