We help the world grow the food it needs.

Helping the world grow the food it needs is what gives our business purpose. Mosaic's continual focus on new product development ensures we can meet the unique needs of growers in every part of the world. Our products, agronomic expertise and financial support for the Mosaic Villages Project help smallhold farmers in Guatemala, India and seven countries in Africa move from subsistence farming to producing a surplus. Mosaic promotes the efficient use of crop nutrients so farmers can maximize crop yields and mitigate potentially negative environmental impacts stemming from improper use.

Our respect for the earth is fundamental.

Mosaic's crop nutrients play a crucial role in nourishing the crops that are needed to feed our growing global population, and our respect for the earth is fundamental. We demonstrate our commitment to environmental sustainability through our land reclamation and water conservation efforts, our nutrient stewardship and our cogeneration projects. Mosaic works to optimize our production processes and reduce our environmental footprint. We are also committed to educating growers on the sustainable use of our products.
