“At Prairie Soils, we’re excited to bring our renowned full-service NH3 advantage to these markets and show just how easy, efficient and cost-effective applying NH3 as your nitrogen source can be on your farm,” commented Parker Summers, president and general manager of the Norquay based ag-retailer.

Customers can anticipate an increased level of service due to Prairie Soils’ vertically-integrated supply and logistics, including its extensive fleet of highway transports, field delivery, and long list of nurse tanks and applicators.

“NH3 has been core to our business since 1983 and has grown and evolved to service the needs of the farms today,” explained Summers. “The acquisition of the CHS sites was a natural expansion of our NH3 service offering and our business.”

Past CHS customers will find it effortless to transition their FCC and Scotia credit lines to Prairie Soils in preparation for the fall NH3 season, Summers said.
