Taurus Ag to be Exclusive Distributor of Ostara Fertilizer Products


Ostara and Taurus Agricultural Marketing have signed an agreement for Taurus Ag to be the exclusive distributor of Ostara’s Crystal Green and Crystal Green Synchro 50 fertilizers in Western Canada, an April 27 news release said.

Crystal Green is a sustainable, granular phosphate fertilizer and Crystal Green Synchro 50 is a fully homogeneous phosphate fertilizer replicating a 50:50 physical blend of Crystal Green and MAP, the release noted.

“Progressive growers have used these technologies successfully on millions of acres and we fully expect that will scale immensely in the coming years with additional production coming from Ostara’s new facility in St. Louis,” Craig Davidson, president of Taurus Agricultural Marketing, said in the release.

The release noted Crystal Green fertilizers have already been used in North America and Europe for many years.

“Taurus Ag and Ostara share a commitment to bringing proven, sustainable, and more efficient innovative products to the market,” Ron Restum, chief commercial officer at Ostara said in the release. “We have successfully partnered with Taurus Ag the past several years and our new long-term partnership is focused on jointly supplying Western Canada with significantly more tonnes of Crystal Green fertilizers.”
