Fertilizer Markets and Finance

On this blog I publish posts & news about what's new in the fertilizer industry and how it's markets are affected by geopolitical developments, environmental changes and monetary policies. I also focus on how farmers are affected by government decisions, and economic fundamentals of the market place. I am passionate about agriculture in Trinidad and write about problems farmers face in the agriculture industry especially in rural areas. Thanks for viewing.

Brazilian mining company Vale SA (VALE, VALE5. BR ) is “interested” in continuing with its Rio Colorado potash project in Argentina, the company’s chief executive officer Murilo Ferreira said Thursday.

The project is “important” for Vale to achieve its fertilizers-production targets, Ferreira told reporters at an event in Rio de Janeiro.

Last week, following the Argentine government’s expropriation of part of an oil company, YPF SA, Ferreira said Vale was evaluating the project in view of Argentina’s economic situation, where inflation has reached about 30% a year. The evaluation started before the expropriation occurred, he clarified.

Vale is also continuing to study with Brazilian state-owned oil producer Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PBR, PETR4.BR), or Petrobras , the possibility of developing projects of common interest to both parties, Ferreira said.

The areas of affinity may include energy and logistics, Petrobras said recently.
