Strategic Business Unit: Retail

Crop protection products can increase crop yields by countering crop disease pressures. As crop prices increase, we often see the use of crop protection products rise as well.

Solutions for Growers

One of the ways Agrium is helping to feed the world responsibly is through our Retail unit. This unit supplies crop protection products, crop nutrients, seed, services and other products directly to customers through 1,220 retail locations in the U.S., Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Australia and Canada.

In the U.S. Agrium retail centers are identified under the name Crop Production Services. Our knowledgeable customer service staff conducts research and training throughout the year to stay on the edge of modern crop protection products. We consider it our obligation to be familiar with the full range of products to provide customers accurate information on their use, benefits and limitations. We hope our customers can benefit from our experience.

Who Retail Sells To:

Our customers in this unit are the hard-working growers that meet the increasing need for nutritious food in North and South American markets. Building relationships with producers in each of our markets allows us to grow with our customers and stay current on their needs.

Solutions in Action:

When a product leaves our doors, that doesn’t mean it leaves our consideration. We employ more than 1,600 Crop Consultants in North America alone, who work directly with growers to customize safe and effective crop management programs. We also employ agronomists who work with researchers to develop and refine best management practices.

Perhaps the greatest challenge faced by the nutrient industry today is communication. Nutrient use and best management practices are often complex and difficult to communicate to stakeholders. As part of Agrium’s commitment to reduce the impact of our products on the environment when leave our hands, we have been a key supporter in the development of the 4R Global Nutrient Stewardship Framework. This science-based system identifies best practices for producers that apply nutrients. Its use allows growers to meet sustainability goals by adopting practices in the areas of form, rate, time and place. This unified approach allows all concerned stakeholders in the nutrients industry to speak with one voice and to focus limited resources to obtain the greatest value for all.
