Agrium merger makes super-sized fertiliser parent for Landmark – Agriculture – Agribusiness – General News – Farm Weekly

Landmark managing director Tommy Warner says the Agrium-Potash Corporation merger will strengthen Agrium’s already-strong position in the fertiliser technology market and Landmark’s offering to Australian farmers.

Australia’s biggest farm services business, Landmark, will potentially be tapping a bigger choice of crop nutrition technology from North America in the wake of a Canadian agribusiness mega-merger unveiled last week.

Fertiliser giants Agrium and Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan plan to combine to create a $36 billion fertiliser and farm retailing behemoth.

Landmark has been one of Agrium’s southern hemisphere merchandise, advisory and livestock marketing outposts since late 2010 when the struggling AWB company was privatised and split up.
