Calgary, Alberta -- Agrium Inc. (TSX and NYSE: AGU) announced today that the Board of Directors has approved a quadrupling of Agrium's cash dividend on common stock to $0.225 per share on a semi-annual basis, up from the previous semi-annual dividend of $0.055 per share. The $0.225 per share dividend will be paid January 19, 2012 to shareholders of record on January 1, 2012.

"The increase in our dividend is a result of the continued growth in stable earnings from our Retail business and the strength in our Wholesale earnings profile and outlook. Agrium is committed to continuing to deliver value-added growth across the value chain and we are confident we can achieve our future growth objectives while at the same time providing a higher dividend to shareholders." said Agrium's President and CEO, Mike Wilson.

All dividends paid by Agrium Inc. are, pursuant to subsection 89(14) of the Income Tax Act, designated as eligible dividends. An eligible dividend paid to a Canadian resident is entitled to the enhanced dividend tax credit.
