BISMARCK, N.D. — Reports for delayed fertilizer shipments from BNSF Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway were released Monday. BNSF reports 32 of its goal of 52 trainloads of fertilizer over a six-week period beginning April 12 have been delivered, an increase from 26 trainloads from last week’s report. The CP report notes 177 train cars were delivered in North Dakota during the week of April 27, an increase from 109 cars during the week of April 20.

Last month, the U.S. Surface Transportation Board ordered BNSF and CP to provide weekly updates on their efforts to ensure timely delivery of fertilizer shipments for the spring planting of U.S. crops in light of freight rail service delays.
