Yara Australia to sell its Yara Nipro liquid fertiliser business to Incitec Pivot Fertilisers


Yara Australia has agreed to sell all of its interest in the Yara Nipro business, which produces and distributes liquid fertiliser for agricultural use in the Eastern states of Australia, to Incitec Fertilizers Pty Limited (Incitec Pivot Fertilisers), a wholly owned subsidiary of Incitec Pivot Limited.

Yara first acquired an interest in Yara Nipro in 2008 before acquiring full ownership in 2011. Since then Yara Nipro has developed into a leading liquid fertiliser business in the region, however after a careful review Yara has decided the liquid fertiliser business no longer fits with Yara’s growth strategy in Australia. Yara Australia will continue to develop and distribute a premium range of products in Australia for dry application, the fertigation segment and foliar micronutrients.

“This transaction does not affect the other parts of our business operations in Australia. The Pilbara plant will continue in its operations and focus on our upcoming project in renewable hydrogen.  Yara Australia will refocus on its core business development activities and transformation efforts to advance farming towards a more sustainable climate-positive food future.“ said Fernanda Lopes Larsen, Executive Vice President, Africa & Asia.

Completion of the transaction is subject to clearance by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and scheduled to occur later in the year.
