Koch Agronomic Acquires AGROTAIN Nitrogen Stabilizer Business

Koch Agronomic Services will offer the AGROTAIN stabilizer product line, including AGROTAIN, AGROTAIN PLUS, AGROTAIN DRY, SUPER U, UMAXX and UFLEXXT stabilizers. These enhanced efficiency products deliver value for growers, turf managers and lawn care companies.
A release from Koch says that customers will see little change in terms of sales support, marketing and customer service
Koch Agronomic Services was formed in 2010 with the acquisition of the Nitamin and Nitamin NFusion slow-release nitrogen fertilizer brands from Georgia-Pacific Chemicals. Since its formation, the business has expanded its capabilities in research and development, sales and agronomy.
“This acquisition offers Koch Agronomic Services an industry-leading portfolio of brands and products that are supported by the scientific community and embraced by growers,” said Steve Packebush, president of Koch Fertilizer.
This acquisition comes after another year of record demand for AGROTAIN stabilizer products around the world, the release said. These products help make nitrogen, one of the most important inputs to yield success, more efficient thus reducing nitrogen loss so nitrogen remains available for the crop.
The growth of Koch Agronomic Services and its vision is supported by Koch Fertilizer’s global presence, which includes sales offices and terminals in the United States , Canada , Mexico , Brazil , Uruguay , the United Kingdom , France , Switzerland , Australia , China and Singapore.
