Agrium sells turf and ornamental line to Koch

(Reuters) - Canadian fertilizer company Agrium Inc AGU.TOAGU.N said on Friday that it will sell its turf and ornamental business to an affiliate of Koch Fertilizer LLC for $85 million including working capital.

The sale, expected to close in the second quarter, is part of a review Agrium completed last year that led to Agrium restructuring its three divisions into two business units.

Koch Fertilizer is a subsidiary of Kansas-based Koch Industries Inc KCHIN.UL, one of the largest privately held U.S. companies.

Agrium shares were down more than 1 percent in Toronto and New York in late morning trading.
