Phosagro Gives India a Break

Phosagro, Russia's largest producer of phosphate fertilizers, said it agreed to provide India Potash and Indian Farmers Fertilizers Cooperative a discount on current contract prices after a drop in the value of the rupee.

Its Indian customer has committed to buying additional volumes from Phosagro, with the Russian company holding a seller's option over these supplies, Phosagro said.
