     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Agriculture Department has created a webpage to help anhydrous ammonia dealers comply with federal Environmental Protection Agency rules.  Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says it provides guidance materials and tools to help anhydrous facility managers better understand the program and how they can comply.
     Anhydrous ammonia is a common farm fertilizer. The EPA requires all facilities that handle, process, or store 10,000 pounds or more of anhydrous to register with the agency and submit a risk management plan.  
     The EPA earlier this year granted authority to North Dakota's Agriculture Department to enforce the requirements in the state. Goehring says pesticide and fertilizer staff will begin conducting inspections and compliance audits of anhydrous facilities in July.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Officials with American Crystal Sugar Co. say they should not have to testify in a lawsuit involving the sugar and corn syrup industries.  American Crystal is not part of the suit, but KFGO radio reports that the Moorhead, Minnesota-based company is being asked to provide information on genetically-modified sugar beets.
     The complaint filed in California accuses corn syrup marketers of misleading consumers by claiming that sugar and high-fructose corn syrup are nutritionally the same.  Lawyers for American Crystal say the information wanted by corn syrup marketers is "confidential, irrelevant or obtainable from other sources."  A judge has not ruled on the motion.
