Exceeding customer expectations. Meeting crop needs.

For generations, CHS Agronomy has created connections to empower agriculture. Today we supply crop nutrients, crop protection and specialized agronomy products and services to agricultural cooperatives and retailers across North America.

Comprehensive agronomy platform

Whether you’re a farmer, or someone who works with farmers, you’ll appreciate our robust agronomy platform. We find the best products from around the world and distribute them through cooperatives and retailers across North America, so farms have exactly what they need, when they need it. Long recognized as a leading distributor of crop nutrients, CHS added crop protection in 2019 – giving the industry a comprehensive, farmer-owned supply partner. Our approach is collaborative. Our infrastructure is unmatched. And our commitment to serving retailers and their farmer customers is unwavering.

Growing strong

The CHS Agronomy supply chain, known for its globally integrated crop nutrient business with strategic assets, capabilities and expertise, now includes nitrogen production and crop protection distribution capabilities spanning products from all the major manufacturers, plus several specialized fertilizers and adjuvants, seed treatments and more.

CHS invested in nitrogen production through CF Nitrogen LLC, a joint venture with CF Industries providing CHS with access to 1.7 million tons of domestic production and complementing extensive import and distribution infrastructure, including a deep-water port in Galveston, Texas, and river, rail and truck terminals. More recently, CHS expanded its agronomy distribution assets, capabilities, and expertise by building a full-service crop protection platform.

CHS markets ATS produced at our McPherson, Kansas oil refinery directly to customers. Our nonstop operation and on-site laboratory ensure a reliable supply of consistently high-quality ATS product to support your agronomy business and nourish your customers’ crops. In fact, our refinery has one of the largest ATS manufacturing units in the country. ATS (ammonium thiosulfate) provides a highly soluble source of essential sulfur, improves phosphorus uptake and has been shown to provide nitrogen stabilization benefits.
