Growmark, Inc., is constructing a fertilizer storage facility at Casey, Ill., to help two of its local FS member cooperatives — Effingham-Clay Service Co., based in Effingham, Ill., and Illini FS, in Urbana, Ill. — serve their customers throughout east central Illinois.

The dry and liquid plant food facility will have storage capacity of 24,000 tons of dry fertilizer and 10,000 tons of liquid fertilizer.

Roger Read, Illini FS general manager, said the new fertilizer facility increases product capacity, which will support the cooperatives' long tradition of service to rural east central Illinois residents.

"Serving our customers, with the products they demand, is our primary goal. This new facility enhances our efficiency to get products to customers at a very competitive price," he said.
