Temasek Holdings Pte., Singapore’s state-owned investment company, increased its stake in Mosaic Co. to become the biggest shareholder of North America’s second-largest fertilizer producer.

Temasek owns 17.9 million shares in Mosaic, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission made public Tuesday. The investment company owned 108,026 Mosaic shares as of Sept. 30, according to a Nov. 14 filing. Temasek now owns 5.9 percent of the Plymouth, Minnesota-based company, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Cargill Inc., formerly the biggest Mosaic shareholder, said in January it was beginning a process to sell its 64 percent stake in the fertilizer producer.

The Temasek stake is valued at $847.5 million, based on Mosaic’s closing share price yesterday in New York.

Mosaic rose 5.4 percent to $49.93 at the close in New York.

Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc. is the largest fertilizer producer by market value.
