Nutrien announced recently that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Agrible for $63-million.
Agrible is a digital agriculture company that offers a broad set of agronomic and on-farm advisory tools, data science capabilities and predictive analytics that connects growers with agricultural, food and consumer products companies to “measure, benchmark and empower sustainable crop production.” Agrible’s platform is currently being utilized by growers and sustainability partners across numerous global geographies, with the U.S. representing the company’s largest commercial market.
Nutrien is self-described as the world’s largest provider of crop inputs and services and produces and distributes over 26 million metric tons of potash, nitrogen and phosphate products world-wide. The transaction is expected to close at the end of July.
