JOICE — Five Star Cooperative says it plans to invest about $9.7 million on three projects in northern Iowa.
The Mason City Globe Gazette says an $8.2 million project has already begun in Joice. It's a dry fertilizer plant that will include 22,000 tons of dry fertilizer storage and raise storage capacity to 2 million gallons for liquid fertilizer. The project is expected to be finished by Sept. 1.
Five Star also is planning a $1.2 million soybean facility project in Hanlontown and a $300,000 project in Scarville for an unmanned gas station.
