With more than 44 years of experience in offshore potash markets, Canpotex has a solid understanding of the needs and concerns of potash customers around the world. Canpotex is well recognized as the leading potash supplier to these markets, supported by its shareholders mining the world's largest reserves of recoverable potash.
Potash consumption is clearly driven by the need for food which, in turn, is a function of population and improving diets. Since the amount of arable land available for food production is limited, most of the increased requirements must be obtained by achieving higher yields from existing farmland; this requires increased application and more importantly, a better balance of fertilizer nutrients. Together, the countries in Canpotex markets contain approximately 60% of the world's population, and Canpotex is actively involved in educating farmers about the role of balanced fertilization in increasing agricultural productivity.
"Canpotex markets" refers to approximately 35 selected offshore countries in Asia, Latin America, Oceania and Africa.
