Sirius Minerals Plc is the fertilizer development company focused on the construction of its North Yorkshire polyhalite project in the United Kingdom. The project involves the construction of a new state-of-the-art mine and associated processing and port infrastructure to produce bulk volumes of POLY4 – the trademark name of the Company’s flagship polyhalite product. POLY4 is a naturally-occurring, low-chloride, multi-nutrient fertilizer containing four of the six essential macro nutrients required for plant growth.

Using POLY4 as the source of potassium, sulphur, magnesium and calcium is more efficient and effective for farmers, delivering flexible and more sustainable fertilizer practices. Sirius Minerals’ research and development programme, conducted in partnership with 105 leading agricultural universities, research institutions and commercial associates, operates across five continents. To date the Company has directed  327 trials on 35 crops in 24 countries. Now entering its seventh year, agronomic studies covering both high-value and broad-acre crops have confirmed the value of POLY4 as a premium multi-nutrient fertilizer. POLY4 promoted nutrient release as well as enabled and supported a broad spectrum of macro- and micro-nutrient uptake, whilst improving crop yield and quality. Crop trials undertaken on broad-acre crops such as corn, soybean, wheat and sugarcane have consistently demonstrated POLY4’s premium performance over alternative potassium sources such as muriate of potash. These four crops alone represent a potential global demand of over 200 million tonnes of POLY4 per annum.


ICL Fertilizers is one of the world’s largest fertilizer companies. We provide farmers, growers and manufacturers on five continents with a wide range of high-performance plant nutrition solutions: potash, Polysulphate, phosphoric fertilizers, phosphoric acid, specialty fertilizers, phosphate rock and tailor-made compound fertilizers.

ICL Fertilizers is your one-stop shop for phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and other macronutrients, whether you need raw materials or more specialized formulated products.

Our global family of integrated businesses all ensure our customers receive the highest quality and competitive pricing together with prompt and relevant advice.
