Nutrien on World Fertilizer Delays and USDA’s 2021 Organic Survey
**Nutrien, the world's largest fertilizer producer, says Russia's invasion of Ukraine could result in prolonged disruptions of fertilizer supplies.
In a report from Reuters, Interim CEO Ken Seitz said Nutrien will boost potash production if it sees sustained supply problems in Russia and Belarus.
www.agrimarketing.com reports, Nutrien expects to sell up to 14.3 million metric tons of potash this year, its most ever, and is considering further expansion.
**Wheat prices continue to climb as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues.
Rabobank analyst Stephen Nicholson says the world’s biggest wheat buyers may need to reconsider whether they’ll continue buying grain from the Black Sea regions.
The Hagstrom Report says buyers may turn to other suppliers like the U.S., Argentina, and Europe.
With the ongoing acreage battle between corn and soybeans in the U.S., Nicholson says we’ll see what the war does to the number of U.S. wheat acres.
