Worldwide Operations

North America
ADM Wholesale Fertilizer, a division of ADM Global Fertilizers, is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with offices in Overland Park, Kansas. ADM Wholesale Fertilizer offers a full line of N-P-K dry and liquid fertilizers as well as anhydrous ammonia from more than 25 Midwest terminals.

Our group capitalizes on ADM’s strong presence in the U.S. grain markets and ADM’s extensive transportation network. Using the same trucks that deliver millions of bushels of grain to our processing plants and terminals, we can coordinate fertilizer delivery through backhauls. ADM Wholesale Fertilizer is the only fertilizer company in the United States that passes efficiencies to customers by managing all aspects of the distribution channel, from vessels to stevedoring, barges to railcars. Using ADM’s land and river transportation network, we are able to deliver fertilizer products to domestic grain elevators and international customers alike from our import/export operations in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Our Wholesale Fertilizer group not only purchases from domestic suppliers, but we also have an international trading arm that offers us insight into and access to global fertilizer markets. This reach allows our team of merchandisers to make sound purchasing recommendations to our customers. 

In Canada, ADM maintains a sulphur and specialty fertilizer trading desk in Calgary.

In Mexico, ADM runs trading and distribution operations out of Mexico City to serve local distributors in the country’s central and southeastern regions. Available products include prilled urea, DAP, N-P-K dry fertilizer, stabilized ammonium nitrate and potash. With east coast ports in Veracruz, Coatzacoalcos and Altamira, ADM’s fertilizer operations in Mexico also support our larger efforts to serve export trade partners worldwide.
