Lesco Sales Fertilizer Mill

I Heard Today That Lesco Has Sold Off Its Fertilizer Mills Several Months Ago. And They Will No Longer Be Able To Dominate The Market With The Best Of The Best Fertilizer Anymore, Since They No Longer Own Or Control Their Fertilizer (granual). Any Truth To This????????

John Deere Landscapes bought them. SO far, we're still getting the same Lesco branded products here.

Lesco sold off its sulfur coated urea fertilizer plants and warehousing 3 years ago or so. They sold it to a newly formed company named Turf Care Supply (TCS) owned by an investment group. They have a contract with Lesco that, among other things, keeps the quality of fertilizer the same. With the John Deere buyout/merger, there could be changes as far as who supplies Lesco stores with their ferts and chems. Only time will tell.

It has nothing to do with the pricing increases. The increases are a result of increased global demand for fertilizer due to Ethanol based Gasoline production, and increased pricing on Urea, Phosphorus and Potassium. These pricing increases are affecting all vendors, not just Lesco/John Deere Landscapes.
