Agrium has been able to do well as a diversified agriculture company. They have a strong presence in the nitrogen business (very profitable). They also have been able to keep up good margins in their seed business. They have also been able to grow alternative forms of income rapidly over the last few years albeit at the loss of some gross margin with regards to that division of their revenues. Besides all of that, Agrium is in a business that is essential to life as we know it: providing the inputs to produce food for millions of Americans. If all of that was not enough, they have a good dividend ratio and a tendency to grow that dividend consistently.
