Plants: Phosphate Fertilizer Manufacturing Plant
660 E. County Line Road
Plant City, FL 33565
The Plant City phosphate fertilizer manufacturing plant converts the phosphate concentrate produced at the company’s Hardee County, Florida operation into approximately 2.1 million tons of phosphate fertilizer each year. Products are diammonium phosphate (DAP) and monoammonium phosphate (MAP).
The Plant City facility, one of the largest integrated ammonium phosphate fertilizer complexes in the U.S. and able to enjoy operational economies of scale, is ideally sized to the company’s mining and beneficiation operations. To produce phosphate fertilizer, it receives concentrate via unit train from Hardee County, as well as ammonia and sulfur via rail and truck from its Port of Tampa operations.
The fertilizer manufacturing plant ships finished product via rail and truck to customers and to the company’s Port of Tampa warehouse for cross-Gulf and export sales. CF Industries’ partnership with global fertilizer trader KEYTRADE AG has enabled the company to more effectively serve export markets.
