(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota state officials have split a forgivable loan for two fertilizer projects.

The ND Industrial Commission approved a $75 million dollar loan for the Dickinson area, and a separate $50 million for a project in the Jamestown area, and smaller grants used for six additional projects. Governor Burgum says the projects are great ways to tie the state's energy and agriculture industries together, due to the large amount of energy needed to produce the fertilizer.
