“Owning their own works to produce fertiliser was but a dream to most farmers. But a group of Southland farmers and businessmen int eh late 1940s believed that dream could be turned into reality. This is the story of how that dream came true and how The Southland Co-operative Phosphate Company Ltd was formed so that farmers themselves could benefit.
It was no easy task. Others had a similar idea which would not have returned to farmers the advantages of a co-operative venture. And even after that battle was won, others had to be faced.
The Story of the first 25 years of production for The Southland Co-operative Phosphate Company Ltd reflects the exciting story of the agricultural area it serves. But it also addresses the future with its fresh challenges, some of which are already arriving.”
