- U.S. farm co-operative CHS agrees to buy 16 Canadian farm retail outlets from Agrium (AGU +0.6%) and says it plans to further expand its business in Canada.
- The deal includes eight stores that sell seed, chemicals and fertilizer to farmers, as well as eight ammonia tank businesses, located in Alberta and Saskatchewan, the two biggest wheat- and canola-growing Canadian provinces.
- Separately, AGU and fertilizer peers Potash (POT +1.1%) and Rentech Nitrogen Partners (RNF +1.4%) are upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Cowen on the possibility that fertilizer prices could rise; the possibility of a late start to fertilizer application, which would pressure logistics systems, may lead to even higher near-term prices, the firm says.
