Fertilizer supplier NE Nitro Geneva LLC (Nebraska Nitrogen) purchased an anhydrous ammonia fertilizer production facility and ancillary campus assets in Geneva, NE, a company announcement said this week. The facility has a capacity of 36,000 tn/yr of nitrogen-based fertilizer.

We are fortunate to acquire a significant capital asset at this point in the commodity cycle.”
