Ammonia tank

Our fertilizers, crop nutrition programs and technologies increase yields, improve product quality and reduce the environmental impact of agricultural practices. Our industrial and environmental solutions improve air quality by reducing emissions from industry and transportation, and serve as key ingredients in the production of a wide range of goods.  Throughout our organization, we foster a culture that promotes the safety of our employees, contractors and society.

Founded in 1905 to solve emerging famine in Europe, today, Yara has a worldwide presence, with more than 12,000 employees and sales to more than 150 countries.

Global activities

Yara converts energy, natural minerals and nitrogen from the air into essential products for farmers and industrial customers. The main application is fertilizers, while industrial uses and environmental solutions are also important growth segments.

Our global activities range from phosphate mining and ammonia production, through commodity trade and energy arbitrage, to building local market knowledge and developing customer relationships. The backbone of the company’s operations was large-scale ammonia and fertilizer production in Europe, but in recent years new capacity has been added in regions with low-cost gas supplies.

We ensure reliable supplies of mineral fertilizer and related industrial products to customers worldwide. We benefit from our scale advantages, as the world’s largest producer of ammonia, nitrate and complex fertilizer, and with about 20% of global ammonia trade.

Our local sales and marketing units provide customer services and agronomical support, working with farmers worldwide to increase yields and improve crop quality and nutritional value.

We utilize our strong production platform and global supply system to create local benefits, providing customers with the combination of quality products and expert knowledge that best matches their needs.
