Innovative, yield-enhancing products only matter if they are formulated to work for your crops in your soil conditions in your corner of the globe. Our efforts to explore the nuances of crop nutrition and put our innovation to the test are unending.

At Mosaic, we maintain close relationships with leading scientists around the world. Through these relationships, such as Mosaic's affiliation with The University of Adelaide in Australia, we have learned more about how nutrients enter a plant's roots in the last two years, than in the previous 40 years knowledge that further shapes our product development and process.

"Our work with Mosaic combines state-of-the-art research with Mosaic's engineering and manufacturing expertise and worldwide agronomy teams to continually improve today's crop nutrient formulations and identify tomorrow's opportunities," said Professor Mike McLaughlin, The University of Adelaide. "Today, we are tracing the life cycle of individual nutrients from manufacturing right through plant uptake 'fingerprinting' each nutrient as it moves out of the granule, into the soil, then into the plant. This unprecedented level of insight gives us the tools to make ever-more efficient products, giving each fertilizer granule more impact."

Mosaic's worldwide research program gives us the ability to field test new crop nutrient formulations on a counter-seasonal basis. We can refine our products year-round so we are always prepared for the next growing season, regardless of hemisphere.

We are constantly striving to improve the way we serve our global customers. The depth and expansive reach of our distribution network sets Mosaic apart, adding to our competitive edge.
