Fertilizer Makers State Plans

Minudobrenia, the fertilizer producer known as Rossosh acquired in July by Arkady Rotenberg for $1 billion, will add 500,000 tons of urea production capacity and may boost ammonia output by 50 percent to 1.5 million tons, Rotenberg's press office said Monday, without giving a time frame.
