AG Specialties is a wholesale trading company, founded in June 2000 by John Hadley. Our main product lines are farm chemicals and fertilizers, but we also trade in animal feeds, seeds, plus industrial and mining chemicals. We purchase worldwide and our sales are predominantly in North America. We represent many manufacturers as domiciled distributors, and also shop the national and international markets for the best deals. As wholesale distributors and brokers we buy and sell fertilizer by the truckload, railcar, barge, and shipload. Farm chemicals are generally traded in pallet lots and truckloads, although expensive chemicals are often sold in case lots. We do sell most of the commodity products, but our focus is on specialty and niche products.
A unique product we handle is a liquid calcium carbonate. Our specialized application equipment allows us to spread liquid lime in the most efficient way, directly sprayed into the root zones of crops like berries, Christmas trees, and other permanent row crops. Our liquid lime has extremely fine particle size, so it is more reactive in the soil than dry limestone – no dusty clouds drifting on to your neighbor’s property.
Truck and Rail Delivery
Service in the wholesale arena is comprised primarily of timely market information, prompt delivery and follow-up to track shipments. Other companies, notably manufacturers, may know more about the markets for individual products, but there are few companies who have the broad range of knowledge and information, as does AG Specialties.
Up-to-Date Market Info
We handle virtually all of the fertilizers and AG Chemicals used in the U.S. Up to the minute market information is our life blood. We have in-house dispatch solely dedicated to shipping and tracking your orders. Our network of manufacturers, associates and trading partners is the inside source of market information.
