BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Cenex Harvest States is planning to build a $1.2 billion fertilizer plant east of Jamestown.

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple said Wednesday the factory is scheduled to start operating in 2016.

It's intended to use natural gas to make about 2,000 tons of anhydrous ammonia fertilizer daily. The plant would operate 24 hours a day and have between 100 and 150 workers.

CHS Inc. intends to locate the factory on 200 acres at the Spiritwood Energy Park in Stutsman County, east of Jamestown.

Dalrymple and company officials announced the project Wednesday at a news conference in the North Dakota Capitol.

CHS is a farmer-owned cooperative based in Inver Grove Heights, Minn.
