Fertilizer giant The Mosaic Company (MOS - Analyst Report) has launched a website CropNutrition.com. This educational digital hub will provide information on soil fertility resources to agricultural retailers, farmers and industry experts who are looking for better understanding of the yield-sensitive scientific aspects of soil.
This website is an integral part of Mosaic’s CropNutrition initiative. Under this initiative, Mosaic has designed an integrated campaign to educate farmers and retailers about important issues and trends affecting soil fertility. The company hopes that farmers will understand that there are various scientific aspects vital to achieving maximum yield and 60% of yield depends on soil fertility.
Mosaic has used numerous vehicles to spread the expertise and agronomic knowledge that is required for understanding the soil better, growing stronger crops and drive higher yields.
