Our Roots

Chem Gro of Houghton

Chem Gro of Houghton, Inc. was founded in 1954 when Harold Dyer and his brother, Irvin Dyer, started selling anhydrous ammonia to local farmers.

In 1963 they purchased property in Houghton, Iowa and began doing business as Chem Gro of Houghton, Inc. Eight years later a grain elevator was added in Houghton and Chem Gro began handling grain as well.

Since then, the business has expanded to include 8 locations with grain elevators, agronomy services or both.
