Potash: Feeding the World exhibit at the Canada Science and Technology Museum

A new exhibit at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa welcomes families, children and neighbors to learn the science of potassium, journey below the earth’s surface inside a virtual potash mine, and understand the farm-to-fork benefits of fertilizer.

In 2012, the Canadian fertilizer industry celebrated its 50th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone and the role of the Canadian fertilizer industry in feeding the world, the Canada Science and Technology Museum developed a 1,500 sq. ft. permanent educational display.

Rick McLellan, Senior Vice President of The Mosaic Company, attended the exhibit opening and participated in an expert panel discussion on Canada’s leading role in potash mining and exporting. He was joined by additional sponsoring company leaders, including Bill Doyle, CEO of PotashCorp, and Mike Wilson, CEO of Agrium.

“Potash mining in Saskatchewan is more than proud tradition,” noted McLellan. “Our industry fuels Canada’s economic engine, and provides thousands of career opportunities in science and technology. Perhaps most important of all, potash fertilizers help grow crops to feed families all over the world.”
