Soil Health Services
As crops grow, they take up nutrients from the soil. When the plants are harvested the nutrients in the soil are depleted. If nutrients are not replaced, the soil quality and productivity decline. This is a gradual process but can become problematic. It is thought to have contributed to the decline of many early civilizations. By working with growers, industry associations, government, and researchers, Agrium strives to ensure nutrients are applied in amounts that sustainably replenish soils.
Nutrients also contribute to the farmer’s ability to generate profits that keep growers in business. Agrium is proud to be part of an industry that provides these life-sustaining resources and maintains the quality of one of the world's most precious resources – our soil.
