Abstract

World demand for potash for agricultural purposes will continue to expand with increasing world demand for food and fiber. World supplies of potash appear more than adequate to meet future increases in demand. However, potash reserves and production facilities are increasingly coming under the control of national governments and in the future the industry outlook will be affected more by political factors than by the economics of the marketplace. As a result, the private enterprise potash producer faces a difficult time competing in a world market dominated by large, politically motivated, government-controlled companies.
