Take a closer look at a Nutrien potash facility and learn how we produce potash to improve crop yields and quantity worldwide. With over 20 million tonnes of potash capacity at our six mines in Saskatchewan, Nutrien is the world’s largest potash producer. Nutrien is growing our world from the ground up and we’re well positioned to meet the world’s long-term potash needs.

Every plant needs three basic elements to grow nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Potassium (K) is important to plants because it acts as a regulator. It helps plants efficiently use water, transfer food, and protect against structural stress. So where do we get the K in fertilizer that provides all these great benefits? This short video shows the process of creating potash fertilizer, complete with unique footage of potash mines, evaporation ponds, and depictions of ancient evaporated inland oceans. Also, check out our new Potassium Cycle Poster available free through our website.

Did you know that it’s possible to mine potash with simply the dissolving power of hot water? The K+S Legacy Project is the first new mine in Saskatchewan in more than 40 years, investing $4.1 billion into Saskatchewan’s economy. At times there are 1,800 people on site working on the construction of the K+S Legacy Project, however the overall workforce employs approximately 4,500 people. As the mine moves towards full operation it will produce 250 tonnes of potash per day with a target of 2 million tonnes by the end of 2017!

Inside the potash mine one mile under the North Sea Boulby Mine, a potash mine in the North York Moors National Park, was built in the 1970s on the site of a former ironstone mine. Cleveland Potash runs the site and produces nearly a million tonnes of potash a year, which is used mainly in fertilisers. Peter Day went down Europe's second deepest mine - one mile below the North Sea, where there are 600 miles (1,000 km) of roadways leading to the potash face.

A documentary from the roots of Saskatchewan. This documentary intends to shed light on the potash mining industry in Saskatchewan. Focusing on the economic benefits existing and new developments bring, as well as the direct affects on local farmers and communities. Saskatchewan has the largest basin of potash in the world. Potash (potassium) is a key crop nutrient and is used in combinations with other nutrients as fertilizers to maximize the yield of crops. Growing populations worldwide will continue to drive the force of the potash industry with an increased reliance on stronger crops that use less agricultural space. With the implantation and developments of new potash mines and infrastructure, local residents and farmers being offered ranges of money in exchange for their land. The future appears to be quickly moving forward for the great prairies.

Potash is an important resource for humanity. It is one of the 3 key nutrients for plants- along with nitrogen and phosphate. It strengthens plants, helps with the uptake of other nutrients, improves taste, and increases resistance to pests and disease. World population rise also strengthens the demand for potash. World organizations show us that most of the future growth in food will come from fertilizers- with potash in the majority. The return of the demand for biofuels and ethanol, which use potash, are also increasing the need. A trending transition away from a starchy diet and into more protein is another factor- as a large amount of plants are needed to feed protein-rich animals. Dwayne Dahl has been in the potash space for 25 years- encompassing all aspects of the potash sales process. He says there has been a hit to the industry with the tonnage and price both down- but he’s optimistic about a future rise along with demand. A recent merger of (POT) and (AGU) shows that the industry is in flux. Any consolidation of this sort could create opportunities- as customers will seek additional potash sources to reduce dependency on the small group of current suppliers. Dahl gives details on a company that is creating an entirely new way of potash production, set to disrupt the industry. They are using methods such as vertical integration, product presales, scalability of facilities to meet presold demand, and a dramatic reduction of environmental and safety issues. They’ve eliminated fresh water use, as well as underground mines, brine ponds, and tailing piles. Low production costs will also make them very viable in the future.
