GARRETSON, SD -

A fertilizer company based in South Dakota has been sold to Koch Fertilizer, a company that has plants in the United States, Canada, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Koch FPF Holdings, a subsidiary of Koch Fertilizer, announced that it has acquired Farmer Plant Food Inc., a company based in Garretson that manufactures and distributes fertilizer products and services.
