By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals industry with the highest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Amer Vanguard ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 40.34. Fmc Corp is next with a a P/E ratio of 29.97. Monsanto Co ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 21.90.

Scotts Miracle follows with a a P/E ratio of 20.45, and Mosaic Co/The rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 20.24.
