Just as we help grow plants, we also grow our nation’s economy, adding $155 billion according to recent calculations. The fertilizer producers, wholesalers and retailers, along with the businesses that serve them, support nearly half a million U.S. jobs with total annual compensation of $36 billion.

We support businesses in all 50 states and these operations pay a combined $15 billion in local and federal taxes each year. The fertilizer industry supplies the nutrients farmers need to grow successful crops with the precise application, keeping them profitable while protecting the environment.

TFI is proud to support such a vibrant and important industry.
