ICS has a complex fertilizer manufacturing unit at the Mbao site, 18 km from Dakar. Most of the granulated fertilizer is intended for the West African market, principally for cotton, peanut, and vegetable growing.
ICS produces "NPK" fertilizers by combining phosphoric acid with ammonia and potash. Indeed, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K) are the essential nutrients plants need to grow. DAP is also an important product manufactured inside the fertilizer site.
