Uralkali Production Cut 40%

Uralkali is cutting first-quarter production by about 40 percent from a year earlier after China and India postponed purchases, its sales director said.

India resumed potash purchases this month while asking to extend the first-quarter schedule until August, Oleg Petrov said Tuesday. This means a delay in sales of 600,000 tons to 700,000 tons that Uralkali's Belarussian Potash trader had planned for the first three months.

Uralkali expects to sign a supply accord with China in April or May instead of March as guided earlier, Petrov said. "We've started negotiations and indicated that we are seeking a certain price increase," he said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
