Agrium Advanced Technologies' new ESN coating facility has commenced commercial operations, completing the construction ahead of schedule and under budget, and has shipped its first sale from the facility.

The New Madrid, Mo., facility began its start up in mid-February and spent six weeks commissioning the plant and ensuring it was producing product that exceeds the strict quality specification required of ESN. "We have worked extremely hard to ensure we were able to get the plant to the high quality standards that ESN is known for," said Rod Oglesby, director of operations for Agrium Advanced Technologies. "We were able to make a few critical adjustments to make the process more consistent, which will result in the best product for growers."
