LOVELAND, Colo. – Nutrien Ltd. has launched its new retail business under the banner of Nutrien Ag Solutions from this city. The name allows the company – the merger of PotashCorp and Agrium – to align all its global retail businesses.

“Our goal is to create a consistent global agriculture brand that represents value and productivity for our customers,” said Chuck Magro, president and CEO of Nutrien. “As the leading provider of crop inputs, services and solutions, Nutrien Ag Solutions will continue to work side by side with our grower customers to maximize crop production and their returns.”

The name change will apply to all offices and operating facilities in North and South America that hold the names: Crop Production Services, Agroservicios Pampeanos and Utilfertil. The official change to Nutrien Ag Solutions will begin on July 1, 2018.

Nutrien is the world’s largest potash producer – 12 million t/y – with capacity rising to 22 million t/y as current expansions are completed. Visit www.Nutrien.com.
