Riga, N.Y. (WHAM) - A new manufacturing plant for ScottsMiracle-Gro opened this week in Riga.

The plant will produce Scotts® and Miracle-Gro® lawn and garden products such as garden and top soil, mulches, and fertilizers.

As part of the expansion in Monroe County, at least 20 full-time jobs are being added. Empire State Development said it offered up to $350,000 in tax credits for commitments to creating the new jobs.

The new 78-acre, $13 million facility will have offices, as well as space for outdoor composting and bagging operations.

Monroe County is also providing a little more than $1.5 million in incentives for the project.

The company headquarters are located in Marysville, Ohio.
