Richardson International Limited

Richardson International is Canada’s largest agribusiness and is recognized as a global leader in agriculture and food processing. Based in Winnipeg, Richardson is a worldwide handler and merchandiser of all major Canadian-grown grains and oilseeds and a vertically-integrated processor and manufacturer of oats and canola-based products. One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, Richardson has over 2,500 employees across Canada and the U.S.

Richardson provides agronomic services and products to farmers across Western Canada. We also buy the grain produced by these farmers. In order to provide value to our customers, we need to work with them to ensure that they are profitable over the long run. This means ensuring they have access to current agronomic advice and the latest in high-efficiency fertilizer products.

This advice starts with soil tests, previous yield/soil mapping and the farmers’ yield goals to ensure that application rates of fertilizer for the next crop are appropriate for that field. 4R Nutrient Stewardship is a great platform for explaining to growers why a particular program is being recommended.

As a grain sourcing and processing company, we have more of our customers asking us to assure them that the crops we sell them are sustainably produced. The industry should be working to incorporate 4R Nutrient Stewardship principles into the sustainable sourcing plans of food companies.

Richardson offers agronomic advice that helps farmers determine the right rate, time, place and source of fertilizer products. Our product line includes more specialty products that deliver fertilizer efficiently to the plant than any other retailer. We have also invested extensively in distribution and retail facilities that can accommodate specialty fertilizer products.
