Plans are in the works for a nitrogen fertilizer plant to be built near Jamestown.
CHS, Incorporated – a farmer-owned cooperative – says it wants to build the plant at Spiritwood. It would be a $1.1 to $1.4 billion facility, using North Dakota natural gas to make anhydrous ammonia and other fertilizers.
"This would be a significant strategic investment for CHS," said Cooperative CEO Carl Casale. "It's the largest investment in the history of CHS. And we believe it would insure a consistent domestic nitrogen fertilizer supply for our farmer-owners."
