Independent Crop Inputs Inc.

Southern Alberta's Only Full-Service, Independent Ag-Retailer

ICI was born out of the clear need for a full service, independent ag-retail business to be present in the Southern Alberta marketplace once again. With the consolidation of the sector into large national and international players, local ownership and service has been lost. Our vision is to provide an unbiased, independent and high value ag-retail service to producers in Southern Alberta.

Crop Nutrition

Independent Crop Inputs - Crop Nutrition

At ICI we are proud of the extensive customization offered for crop nutrition. All nutrition requirements can be sourced and advised on at ICI. This is because Southern Alberta is one of the most productive and intensive growing regions in Canada when it comes to specialty crops. Each of these crops have their own blueprint for nutrition and we help producers both map the blueprint and meet the need.

Our 8 bins of macro-separation as well as variety of micronutrients (granular, powder and liquid) contribute to the optimized solution for each crop in each field as required. Our blending system offers these blends within 0.5% variance of target so crop nutrition is met nearly perfectly every time a blend is shipped.

Our fleet of ‘rolling stock’ includes floaters, tender trucks and trailers to ensure custom application is ready to meet the needs of any producer at any time.

Whether it is direct to farm sales, pre-buying or in-season requirements, Randy, Bruce and Hal welcome your call to assist with crop nutrition decision making.

ICI values people through clear and honest advice.
