Canadian Fertilizer Chain Flowing Smoothly Despite COVID-19

-

Fertilizer shipments to farmers are still flowing throughout Canada despite recent supply disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fertilizer Canada says in a news release.

Movement must continue to allow farmers to position product for the beginning of the planting season in late April and early May and ensure additional quantities are available for replenishment throughout the planting season, the release says.

Fertilizer Canada says it would become concerned though about any restrictive measures which may have unintended consequences on rail, port and truck service, imports or operations at agri-retail. The organization urges governments to ensure the Canadian border remains open for the movement of fertilizer as spring planting nears.
