#MoreMissouri21: Ostara Selects Missouri for Growth, $25 Million In Investment

As 2021 draws to a close, Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year.

In August, Ostara St. Louis, Ltd., an agtech company, announced plans to establish a Crystal Green® fertilizer production facility in St. Louis, Missouri.

“We’re excited to welcome another agtech company to Missouri, where agriculture remains our number one economic driver,” Governor Mike Parson said at the time. “Ostara’s investment in St. Louis will create more career opportunities for Missourians, build on its mission to help farmers improve crop yields across North America, and protect water and soil quality around the globe.”

The facility represents $25 million in capital investment, and is expected to create 40 jobs in the region.

“St. Louis was a natural choice for Ostara to construct its newest and largest manufacturing facility that will produce our environmentally friendly Crystal Green® fertilizer,” Dan Parmar, Chief Executive Officer at Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies said at the time. “As we gear up production over the next year, we’re partnering with the St. Louis community and Missouri businesses to continue our mission to produce a sustainable phosphorus soil health solution that will enhance crop yields while protecting water sources across the globe.”
