Below are the three companies in the Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals industry with the highest future earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (next fiscal year estimated vs. current fiscal year estimated) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

CF Industries ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 238.1%. American Vanguard is next with a future earnings growth of 55.6%. Mosaic ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 24.1%.

Monsanto follows with a future earnings growth of 13.8%, and Scotts Miracle-Gro rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 11.8%.
