Nutrien: Breaking Down Data Silos

Source: OSIsoft

Founded in 2018 from the merger of two major Canadian agriculture supply businesses, Saskatoon-based Nutrien is the world’s largest producer of potash and the second-largest producer of nitrogen fertilizer. The company produces more than 26 million metric tons of fertilizer a year, serving more than 500,000 growers worldwide. Many of the company’s individual sites have been using PI System™ software for some time, but until recently, Nutrien had no enterprise-level system for handling data. By centralizing the flow of data through the company, Nutrien now has better coordination, anticipation, and insight into operations across the business.
