Mosaic Achieves MicroEssentials Million Tonne Milestone

MicroEssentials® was first introduced 12 years ago, and since then it has grown into the leading premium fertilizer product in the world.

In 2013, Mosaic distributed 1 million metric tonnes of MicroEssentials fertilizer to North America. This is a significant accomplishment for Mosaic, and a great benefit to farmers who work to achieve higher yields and grow more food.

Long-term studies show that fertilizer is responsible for up to 40-60 percent of crop yields. Mosaic provides farmers with balanced crop nutrition tools, like MicroEssentials, and agronomic recommendations for applying the right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place to grow healthy plants.

MicroEssentials is a unique, proprietary fertilizer formulated for use on most crops. Through Mosaic’s patented Fusion™ technology process, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur and zinc are fused into one nutritionally balanced granule. This creates a single source for balanced crop nutrition. The unique chemistry and proper nutrient ratio of MicroEssentials promotes uniform nutrient distribution, improved nutrient uptake, and season-long sulfur availability.

Reaching this first of its kind Mosaic goal required exceptional teamwork. From manufacturing to supply chain to marketing and sales, more than 1,500 employees helped produce and deliver the value of MicroEssentials fertilizer to retail customers and farmers.
