Florida Phosphate Operations
Phosphate Operations in Florida
Central Florida's "Bone Valley" stretches from Polk County southward through portions of Hillsborough, Manatee, Hardee, and DeSoto counties. Mosaic operates four phosphate mines and four fertilizer manufacturing facilities in Central Florida and the Tampa Bay region that can be located on our global presence map.
Before any phosphate mining begins, exhaustive planning and approval processes are in place to protect air, water, ecology, transportation, safety and other environmental, health and public welfare considerations. All potential impacts must be reviewed and permitted by the local, state and federal agencies and safeguards implemented to minimize or mitigate risk.
