The primary end consumer for our Wholesale products is the agriculture market — in particular, growers of grains, oilseeds and other crops who want to enhance crop yields and quality. Agricultural buyers account for about 89 percent of our Wholesale sales.
The other 11 percent of our sales support a broad range of industrial uses. For example, urea is used for the production of resins in the construction industry and potash for the recycling of aluminum. The majority of our industrial sales volumes come from nitrogen products — primarily ammonia, urea, ammonium nitrate and aqua ammonia — produced at our facilities in Western Canada, Ohio and Texas, and sold in Canada and the U.S.
