Russian fertilizer companies have fulfilled the plan of spring deliveries

Russian mineral fertilizer producers have completed the plan of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia to provide domestic farmers.

By the beginning of June, Russian farmers purchased 3.4 million tons of mineral fertilizers, which is 12% more compared to the same period of 2021. During the five-month period, Russian chemical companies have already provided over 70% of the forecast demand of domestic agriculture for mineral fertilizers for 2022.

“All farmers’ requests were fully satisfied, and the products were delivered just in time for spring fertilizer application. We are waiting when the Ministry of Agriculture sets the fertilizer needs until the end of the year, and we’re also ready to meet it in full,” said Maxim Kuznetsov, Executive Director of the Russian Fertilizer Producers Association (RFPA).

As of today, over 42 million hectares have been sown with spring crops in Russia, which is about 80% of the forecast area. On May 12, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the grain harvest could reach a record 130 million tons, including 87 million tons of wheat.
