A Closer Look at the New Wales Manufacturing Facility in Mulberry

Mosaic’s New Wales facility manufactures various fertilizer and animal feed products to help the world grow the food it needs. In fact, New Wales has the capacity to produce more than four million tons of these essential products each year.

To create fertilizer and animal feed ingredients, the facility converts phosphate rock to a soluble form so it can be used as a nutrient by plants and animals. Sulfuric acid is mixed with phosphate rock to create phosphoric acid. Ammonia is then added to create water soluble granules farmers use for nourishing crops or feeding their animals.

From there, the final products are shipped by rail, truck and barge to customers around the world.
