The potash producer and full-service producer of crop inputs and services, Nutrien Ltd, has announced that it is fully aligned with Canpotex’s view that the new price announced between Indian Potash Ltd (IPL) and Belarusian Potash Co. (BPC) is significantly below market price levels for potash in key offshore markets.
“We understand that the Potash agreement with India was settled at the highest government level with limited commercial involvement,” said Ken Seitz, Executive Vice President and CEO of Nutrien Potash. “This contract price in no way reflects the market-based pricing in the current key offshore potash markets which, like other fertilizers, is being supported by strong global crop fundamentals. Nutrien wholly supports Canpotex’s position to not follow this price level for potential sales into India in 2021.”
Nutrien has also confirmed that it is now fully committed on potash sales to North America through April 2021, in addition to offshore sales volumes with Canpotex. It is significant that these offshore commitments through April do not include any shipments to India or China.
