ICL Boulby, the UK-based producer of polyhalite and part of the ICL Group, has said that its fertilizer products are now attracting growing interest in the Indian market.

Suppliers across the sub-continent are now stepping up sales of the Boulby product – marketed as Polysulphate – which provides a combination of sulfur, potassium, magnesium and calcium, all vital to plant growth and yields.

Andrew Fulton, ICL Boulby General Manager and Vice President, said: “As the world’s second largest country in population terms the challenge for its farmers and growers in maximising food production for over 1.3 billion people is vital.

“Now our ICL parent company is making major strides in developing the market for Polysulphate in India—recently over three thousand farmers attended a seminar in Maharashtra state where the ICL agronomy team explained how they could benefit from using our products.”

The Boulby mine in North Yorkshire has a production target of 700 000 t this year, and is aiming to reach 1 million t by the end of 2020 and 1.3 million t by 2023.
