April 1 (Reuters) - Agrium Inc said on Monday that criticism by dissident shareholder Jana Partners of how it is soliciting support in an ongoing proxy battle is "baseless."

Agrium said dealer solicitation groups are commonly used in contested situations in Canada as a means of getting information to shareholders who can't be reached.
