CHS and Land O'Lakes announced that Agri-AFC LLC, based in Decatur, Ala., will acquire the Agriliance Retail South locations in Georgia, along with two locations in Mississippi.

The Georgia locations being acquired by Agri-AFC are in Waynesboro, Sasser, Hawkinsville, Rochelle, Arabi, Sylvester and Camilla. In Mississippi, the locations are at Hattiesburg and Magnolia.

Agri-AFC was formed in 2003 as a joint venture between Alabama Farmers Cooperative Inc., and Agriliance LLC. In 2007, Winfield Solutions LLC, a Land O'Lakes company, acquired Agriliance's interest in Agri-AFC. Agri-AFC provides crop input products to Alabama Farmer's Coop member cooperatives through seven fertilizer terminals, three crop protection warehouses, and two seed warehouses. In addition, Agri-AFC operates seven former Agriliance retail locations in south Alabama and southwest Georgia. The acquisition of the Agriliance locations in Georgia and Mississippi supports Agri-AFC's strategic plan for growth.

Agriliance will continue to operate and aggressively support its remaining retail locations, while continuing to investigate other repositioning opportunities.
