K+S, which is building a huge potash mine northwest of Regina, has a new deal to sell its product to Koch Fertilizer. 

Koch announced Tuesday it has exclusive rights to a supply of around 450,000 tonnes of granular potash, a mineral used as fertilizer for corn and other crops. 

K+S says the Legacy mine site located northwest of Regina is worth $4.1 billion.

It expects to reach a capacity of two million tonnes of potash per year by the end of 2017.
