Agrium Advanced Technologies Moves NITROFORM Production to Courtright Plant
Release Date: 5/3/2010
LOVELAND, Colo. (May 3, 2010) - Agrium Advanced Technologies today announced it will begin manufacturing its NITROFORM® slow-release fertilizer product line in the company's production facility in Courtright, Ontario, Canada.
Starting in May, NITROFORM will be produced in the same facility as Agrium Advanced Technologies' other non-coated product lines, including NUTRALENE® slow-release fertilizer and Balanced Chain Methylene Urea (BCMU®).
"This is an important strategic move for Agrium Advanced Technologies," said Andrew Mittag, president, Agrium Advanced Technologies. "With all three non-coated product lines manufactured in-house, we can ensure the highest-quality control standards and better manage costs."
For more than 50 years, turf and ornamental professionals have relied on NITROFORM slowrelease fertilizer to provide steady, balanced feeding of nitrogen throughout an entire growing season. With two-thirds water-insoluble nitrogen (WIN), NITROFORM effectively delivers organic feeding for months and with fewer applications. Its exclusive release properties make NITROFORM one of the most environmentally sound and longest-lasting, slow-release nitrogen sources available.
"NITROFORM is a long-standing leader among nitrogen sources," added Mittag. "Manufacturing NITROFORM in our Courtright facility further demonstrates our commitment to maintaining a full range of slow- and controlled-release fertilizers and providing environmentally sound, highperformance plant growth technologies."
NITROFORM slow-release fertilizers are available from many suppliers nationwide.
