A proud history

Nutrien Ag SolutionTM is the retail business of Nutrien Ltd., the world’s largest provider of crop inputs and services. The brand was established in 2018 after Nutrien was formed through the merger of PotashCorp and Agrium.

Though the Nutrien Ag Solutions name is still relatively young, the company can trace its roots to predecessors that began operating as early as 1859. Prior to the launch of the new brand, the company was known in the U.S. as Crop Production Services, the retail arm of Agrium. Crop Production Services, which itself had been formed through a merger of four different companies, had long established a reputation as one of the leading crop input retailers in the country, with more than 900 retail locations and 7,500 employees.

Much has changed in agriculture since Nutrien Ag Solutions’ humble 19th-century beginnings. Advancements in technology allow for more effective growing methods that minimize environmental impacts. Under the Nutrien umbrella, the company has expanded its product and service offerings and is part of a global network of retailers spanning three continents.

Despite these changes, the people of Nutrien Ag Solutions have never lost sight of the American farmers and the work they do. Decade after decade, we’re here to provide the best technologies, tools and products so you can focus on what you do best: grow.

Our Predecessors

Prior to its rebranding in 2018, the company now known as Nutrien Ag Solutions was called Crop Production Services. CPS was officially born in 1983 and was acquired by Agrium 12 years later. Over time it had grown so much that when it merged with three other Agrium-owned companies in 2009, the newly formed company retained the Crop Production Services name.

The four companies that merged to form the “new” CPS each brought their own unique histories and capabilities to the table:

  • The original Crop Production Services operated more than 300 facilities in 24 states east of the Rocky Mountains, and it specialized in custom-blended fertilizer, agricultural chemicals, seed, custom application and precision agriculture.
  • Western Farm Service, founded in 1968, had more than 80 facilities in five states west of the Rockies and featured a turf and ornamental product line as well as a wholesale distribution network and a 1,500-unit-strong weather station network.
  • Royster Clark was a leading supplier of fertilizers, seed and crop-protection products. Established in 1972, it operated more than 300 retail locations serving the eastern third of the United States.
  • United Agri Products was an independent distributor of agricultural inputs and non-crop products with 370 locations in the U.S. and Canada. Founded in 1978, it offered distribution and storage facilities, fertilizer, seed, seed treatment and custom application services.

These four companies blended together to form the unified company that became Nutrien Ag Solutions, the largest agricultural crop-input business in North America.

Committed to Protecting Our Environment

United States farmers were the original environmentalists - dedicated stewards of our natural resources - long before it became a campaign slogan. At Nutrien Ag Solutions, we are committed to upholding this important agricultural tradition.
