Nutrien is expanding production in Saskatchewan.

President and CEO Ken Seitz says they are planning to increase the province's annual potash production from 15 million tonnes to 18 million by 2025.

The increased production is expected to come from the Lanigan, Allan and Vanscoy mines.

Nutrien operates six mines in the province.
