Bloomington, Illinois-based GROWMARK, Inc. will construct a dry fertilizer storage facility at Stuart, Iowa. Local retailer AGRILAND FS, Inc. will conduct the day-to-day operational activities at the facility.

The dry plant food facility will have storage capacity of 15,500 tons of fertilizer and will complement the acquisition of CF terminals made by GROWMARK in 2011, said Rod Wells, GROWMARK Plant Food Division manager.

"The location of the Stuart facility is a good fit for AGRILAND FS, and will save the cost of replacing a dry fertilizer building in Winterset," added John Knobloch, AGRILAND FS general manager

Construction will begin in spring 2012 and completion is expected in fall 2012. The facility will have rail receiving capability from the Iowa Interstate Rail System.

"Iowa Interstate Railroad looks forward to this new venture," said Carrie Evans, Iowa Interstate Railroad vice president of sales and marketing. "Our connections with all Class One rail carriers at multiple locations, along with access to the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, will help provide an enhanced alternative for transportation to this region."

AGRILAND FS, Inc. is an agricultural based cooperative, headquartered in Winterset, Iowa. It provides ag-related inputs including feed, seed, plant food, crop protection, fuel, lubricants, and grain marketing services to farmers and rural residents in 38 southern Iowa counties.
