Our Winning

Future

Mosaic has made bold moves over the last several years to position us for a winning future. We have reduced our costs substantially, and our financial strength has allowed us to make significant growth investments. We’ve led the industry in developing innovative premium products that help our customers and their growers achieve high yields.

Our Great Potential

Demand for crop nutrients remains strong, and we expect it to rise as the global population grows. Mosaic is committed to delivering innovative fertilizer products farmers need to help maximize yields and feed a growing population. Increasing global prosperity means more demand for meat—and for the grain to feed cattle, pigs and chickens raised for food.

Without fertilizers, the world’s crop yields would be cut in half

For food production to keep pace with the growing population, the world’s farmers must produce more food, fuel and fiber. And they will need fertilizers to do it. When it comes to producing enough food for a growing global population, healthy soils are paramount. Every time a crop is grown and harvested, nutrients are removed from the soil—and those nutrients must be replaced in order to continue producing food, feed, fuel and fiber crops. Potash and phosphate fertilizers make a vital contribution to healthy, productive soils by providing the nutrients plants need for growth. At Mosaic, we have the opportunity to help the world’s farmers meet the growing demands and ensure their soils are healthy with our innovative products and services.

Farmers will need fertilizer to meet growing food demand

To maintain soil fertility and potential for higher yields, farmers must replace crop nutrients every year

FACT 200 bushels per acre corn yield removes 270 pounds per acre of crop nutrients3


We Support and Promote 4R Nutrient Stewardship

Beyond providing the farmers with crop nutrition products, we help them sustainably and efficiently use them through 4R engagement. 4R Nutrient Stewardship encompasses fertilizer best management practices to achieve cropping system goals, including environmental protection. To achieve those goals, the 4Rs framework incorporates the Right nutrient source, at the Right rate, at the Right time, and in the Right place.

THE PROMISE
OF BRAZIL

Brazil’s agricultural market is one of the biggest in the world. Brazil’s farm economy has grown at remarkable rates over the past two decades, and that growth continues today. Mosaic has extensive relationships and experience in Brazil. Upon completion of the Vale Fertilizantes acquisition, Mosaic expects to be the leading fertilizer producer and distributor in Brazil.
