Yara can look back on more than 70 years of business in North America supporting the farmers and the industry throughout this great country. From the start in 1946 until today, the company’s main focus has been to be a leading crop nutrition solutions provider specializing in nitrogen fertilizers and industrial products. With different company names and structures, evolving from Norsk Hydro via Hydro Agri North America to Yara North America, the company has provided customers in North America with superior products and services for over 70 years.
Yara's history is living proof of our commitment and consistency all the way from the beginning in 1946 when Norsk Hydro signed the first sales agreement with Wilson & Geo. Meyer until today. Our history shows how the company has developed, grown and been supported by a growing market. It also shows the early globalization of the company and the fertilizer industry. During the later years the development of the industrial market and the increased focus on environmental products mark two additional important milestones.
Yara North America offers a wide range of products that come from a variety of manufacturing facilities. For detailed information about various Yara global production sites, please visit our corporate website.
