Koch Agronomic Services, LLC, a subsidiary of Koch Fertilizer, LLC, has completed an asset acquisition of AGROTAIN International, LLC's AGROTAIN.
"We're excited to integrate the portfolio of AGROTAIN stabilizer products into Koch Agronomic Services," said Steve Packebush, president of Koch Fertilizer. "The marketplace will benefit from the synergies that exist between Koch Agronomic Services and the AGROTAIN International businesses, as well as the global footprint of Koch Fertilizer."
Koch Agronomic Services now offers the AGROTAIN stabilizer product line, including AGROTAIN, AGROTAIN PLUS, AGROTAIN DRY, SUPER U, UMAXX and UFLEXXTM stabilizers.
Customers will see little change in terms of sales support, marketing and customer service. Koch Agronomic Services will continue offering competitive, innovative products with outstanding service.

"This acquisition offers Koch Agronomic Services an industry-leading portfolio of brands and products that are supported by the scientific community and embraced by growers," said Packebush. "By combining the brands, operations and personnel of AGROTAIN International with our existing business, we will offer the market a comprehensive portfolio of value-added products with the expertise to support that portfolio."
