ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, US — ADM has announced plans to build a new fertilizer terminal and blender in St. Paul, a move the company said will boost availability and access to quality crop nutrition products across the northern US Corn Belt and western Canada. In addition, the company said the new river terminal will strengthen its position as a preferred and reliable supplier of fertilizer.

ADM said the new terminal will have bulk storage capacity for a wide range of macronutrients and micronutrients that may be blended on site to meet its customers crop nutrition needs.

“The St. Paul facility is the newest leg of our strategy to be a world-class supplier of fertilizer,” said Scott Nagel, president, ADM-Benson Quinn. “It strengthens our global supply chain logistics infrastructure to help ensure we continue to reliably procure and deliver high-quality fertilizer. It is ADM’s robust logistics network that enables us to rapidly respond to changing market conditions like what we have been experiencing over the last year.”

ADM operates 28 river and interior fertilizer terminals across the United States and Canada. The terminals supply dry and liquid fertilizer to retailers and farmers throughout North America.
