AGRIS Co-operative completes $2.5 million overhaul to its fertilizer facilities
THAMESVILLE, ONTARIO, April 18, 2019 – AGRIS Co-operative owners celebrate the official opening of their new fertilizer blending system in Thamesville today, a capital investment of more than $2.5 million. The new facilities in Thamesville will increase the previous blending capability to 300 MT per hour, four times faster than before. This new investment completes an overall strategy to increase capacity throughout the co-operative’s full trade territory. O
ver the past several years, AGRIS has brought its overall blending capacity to nearly 1,000 MT per hour across its nine blending sites. Each of these sites has the ability to add nitrogen stabilizer and micronutrient products in a liquid form to dry blends. This capability allows precise, cost-effective and convenient plant nutrition in a high-quality fertilizer blend.

As we finish up some final touches on preparing our equipment and wait for it to dry up before we go to the field, we should consider what is impacting on weed growth. Recent warm weather has greened things up and brought many weeds back to life, especially winter annuals and some perennials. A wet fall did not allow for usual primary tillage or burn-downs to happen, which would be our first step in controlling these weeds.
