Terra Industries Inc. has shut down its Donaldsonville, La., ammonia plant indefinitely. The plant has an annual production capacity of approximately 500,000 tons and last operated on Dec. 23, 2004.

As the Donaldsonville facility's other plants were already shut down, the closing of the ammonia plant completes the transition from an integrated manufacturing facility to a facility used only as a storage and distribution terminal.

Terra also announced that it has entered into an agreement to purchase ammonia for delivery to Donaldsonville from Yara, a major international ammonia manufacturer.
