CROPS INC (TSXV-COPS) is a Canadian listed public company developing the Bayovar 12 sedimentary phosphate concession in Sechura, Northern Peru.
Management's vision has been to be the supplier of choice of Natural Phosphate Rock Fertilizer to plantations & farmers throughout the world and contributing to the improvement of farm yields and sustainable agriculture. Early in 2017 this vision was expanded to include traditional finished phosphoric fertilizer producers, Life Science Groups who have developed polymer soil enhancers and the industrial application industries using elemental phosphorus for a diverse suite of speciality chemical products.
Phosphate is one of the vital nutrients required in modern row crop and cash crop farming. The growing long term demand for phosphate fertilizers is driven by a combination of global population growth, increasing demand for dietary protein and a reduction in the area of arable land available for crop production. Elemental Phosphorus is an essential intermediate product which is made from Phosphate Rock, Coke and gravel to make specialty chemicals for engine lubricants, flame retardants, herbicide and food grade phosphoric acid among others.
