Mosaic temporarily suspends Louisiana phosphate operations


PLYMOUTH, US: The Mosaic Company will temporarily shut down its Louisiana operations due to the impact of the Mississippi river flooding on its electrical power supplies. Operations will resume when river water levels recede and conditions permit. The company also noted that its ammonia plant at this location is temporarily idled for repairs following a recent incident.

Mosaic’s Louisiana operations include Faustina, which produces diammonium phosphate and ammonia and its Uncle Sam facility, which produces phosphoric, sulfuric and fluosilicic acid. These matters are not expected to have a material impact on Mosaic’s operations or financial results.
