In the first six months of 2020, Acron Group shipped approximately 750 000 t of its products to domestic growers, up 30% y/y.

Ammonium nitrate and complex fertilizers (NPK) were most popular with Russian growers over the period. Acron shipped over 500 000 t of ammonium nitrate domestically, up 31% y/y, and 218 000 t of highly efficient complex fertilizers, up a quarter y/y.

Agricultural enterprises in Russia’s central and southern federal districts remain major consumers of Acron’s products.

The chairman of Acron’s Board of Directors Alexander Popov, commented: “This year, we are still seeing strong demand for mineral fertilizers from Russian agricultural producers. We remain committed to meeting the growing needs of Russian farmers as a priority”.

In late 2019, Acron Group signed fertiliser supply agreements for 2020 with regional agriculture departments in Penza, Bryansk, Orel, Ryazan, Yaroslavl, Kursk, Ivanovo, Novgorod, Lipetsk, and Belgorod regions.
