Conclusion of agreement between Belarus and India

Supply price does not reflect current market conditions

02-01-2021
K+S has noted that the price agreed for potash supplies is significantly below the level currently prevailing on important export markets. Therefore, the continuing positive fundamental situation of the agricultural markets as well as the associated increasing demand for potash fertilizers is not reflected in any way.

For the upcoming spring season, very favorable demand for potash fertilizers can be observed worldwide in all important sales regions. Against this background, K+S will refrain from deliveries to India given the stated conditions until further notice.

At the end of last week, Belarusian Potash Corporation (BPC) announced the signing of a new agreement with Indian Potash Limited (IPL) with an annual volume of 800,000 tonnes at a price of USD 247 per tonne.
