Mosaic’s New Wales Plant: bringing a world-class legacy into the 21st century

The world’s population is estimated to be about 7 billion people, with another 150,000 people born every day. Combine those statistics with limits on farmable land, and you get a powerful demand for productive soil. Understanding these forces, strategic planners at Mosaic Co., the world’s largest producer of phosphate fertilizer, are investing billions of dollars in the company’s phosphate- and potash-based fertilizer operations, including the flagship New Wales phosphate facility in Mulberry, Fla.
