​In agriculture we have a great industry of experts to help further our knowledge of crop nutrition and soil fertility. But what often doesn’t get discussed is where crop nutrition inputs come from, and what are the factors influencing the costs of those inputs. This presentation gives a high level overview of fertilizer manufacturing, global fertilizer trade, and major global market influencers. This is intended not as a pricing guide, but rather to give growers insight into a complex marketplace.
