In 2016, Acron Group supplied over 900 000 t of mineral fertilizers to Russian consumers. Based on 2016 results, Acron Group increased mineral fertilizer sales in the domestic market nearly by 20% to over 900 000 t. Veliky Novgorod-based Acron more than doubled its shipments to the Russian market.
Bryansk, Oryol and Belgorod regions remain the major consumers of Acron Group’s products. Ammonium nitrate and complex fertilizers (NPK) are the most popular products among Russian farmers.
Chair of Acron Board of Directors, Alexander Popov, commented: “In 2016, Russia’s agroindustrial complex significantly increased purchases of mineral fertilizers, including due to state support. Domestic fertilizer producers are ready to meet the growing needs of Russia’s agroindustrial complex”.
