The paper "In-depth Analysis of Mosaic Company " is a perfect example of a business case study. The Mosaic Company is a leading international combined producer and marketer of concentrated phosphate and potash. It is situated in Plymouth, Minnesota. Launched in October 2005, the mosaic was formed as a merger between IMC global a fertilizer company formed in 1909 and Cargill’ s Potash and phosphate are two key crop nutrients. Mosaic mines two key crop nutrients i. e. potash and phosphate- and produces specialty products MicroEssentials, Pegasus and K-Mag. It is the largest U. S.
producer of Potash and Phosphate fertilizer. The company is both a producer and marketer of concentrated phosphate and potash. This has enabled the company to grow to greater heights. Mosaic’ s customer base includes retail dealers, wholesalers and individual growers in more than 40 countries. As a company that makes all its business decisions and investments with the aim of making the owner (shareholder) better off financially while maximizing its market share in consideration to the stakeholders its main aim is to help the world grow enough food that it needs.
This was through growing potash and phosphate line food production in line with the increasing market demand, by helping growers and retailers understand how a balanced soil leads to stronger crops and higher yields. Product export Across the world, production is at a higher risk in many farm fields due to unbalanced fertilization especially when replacing harvested nutrients or building and sustaining the soil ph. However, it’ s proven that the use of balanced fertilization between phosphates and potash is the best management practice. In the United States, Canada and Africa recent soil tests indicate that over 60% of the states and provinces, 40% or more of the analyzed soils samples test medium or lower in soil test potassium and phosphorous, this indicates that the two nutrients need are not being met in many farms.
For example, phosphorous plays a critical role in photosynthesis, genetic coding and energy transfer in plants while potassium is essential in enzyme activation water use, transport of sugars, protein synthesis and starch synthesis in plants.
