As we look back at the past year it can be said that 2020 was a year unlike any other in living memory.
It has challenged our Nutrien Ag Solutions™ staff, both personally and professionally, our partners and the farmers who rely on us. And although it has been a challenge, there have also been opportunities. Opportunities to grow, to support each other and our communities.
Here is a look back at some of the events that stood out to us in 2020.

• The new Nutrien Ag Solutions mobile app launches making it more convenient than ever for growers to manage their business.
• In the spirit of Health and Safety and in alignment with our Nutrien Core Principles of “Caring for each other’s Health Safety and Security,” the majority of our retail locations were equipped with an Automated External Defibrillator.

• Loveland Products takes 30 lucky Nutrien Ag Solution employees on a trip to Denton TX to tour the Agricen's Production facility as a reward for increasing Atlas XC sales.

• COVID-19 arrives in Canada. Nutrien Ag Solutions staff successfully implement new safety measures to protect staff, growers and the community while continuing to operate as an essential service.

• The Southwest Saskatchewan division gives back to the community, providing $25,000 in meal vouchers to farmers to use at 19 local restaurants during the COVID-19 lockdown.

• The North Central Alberta division raises $41,000 for local food charities.

• Health and safety is about more than just physical health which is why Nutrien Ag Solutions supports mental health on the farm by participating in Mental Health Week.

June - July
• The annual Ag in Motion farm expo makes the decision to go digital in June. Nutrien Ag Solutions responds with the introduction of a new award winning 360o virtual to guide growers through a digital plot tour and expo experience.

• Members of the Saskatoon Nutrien Ag Solutions team show what it means to grow our world from the ground up with donations of fresh produce to local food banks.

• The South East Saskatchewan division field scouting program wraps up with one million acres scouted.

• Construction on the new state-of-the-art Rosthern Training Facility is completed. The facility will be used to host training sessions for employees across Western Canada.
