Our History

Mears Fertilizer began as a retail dealer in El Dorado, Kansas. Less than a decade later, we completed construction of our first portable liquid poly-phosphate processing unit. It was used at our terminal, as well as for limited on-site processing for customers in three states.

With a growing customer base and ever-advancing technology, Mears Fertilizer, Inc. required a second unit in 1978, and added two more units over the following decade. Thanks to our dedication to maintenance and upgrading, the liquid poly-phosphate conversion units remain the core of our operation, helping us serve customers in 30 states and producing 300 – 400 thousand tons of finished product each year.

Today, we are still growing, adapting and improving based on our experience and expertise. Our knowledge runs deep and we trust that we will continue to discover cutting-edge ways to meet our customers’ needs and provide personalized solutions with unsurpassed proficiency.
