Dangote To Benefit As Fertilizer Prices Hit Near Decade High by iwaeda: 8:02am On Sep 06, 2021
Dangote Group which began its its first shipment of fertilizer from its new fertilizer plant at the Lekki Free Zone in Lagos, to the US and Brazil in July should benefit from the highest Fertilizer prices in nearly a decade.

The $2.5 billion plant which is one of the world’s biggest fertilizer plant has the capacity to produce 3 million tons of urea and ammonia per year.

Fertilizer prices are nearing a decade high this week as soaring commodity prices allow farmers to expand crop production, boosting demand for nutrients essential to producing food.

The fertilizer industry is experiencing supply-side constraints while demand is rising.

Rabobank’s latest commodity note explained that farmers are expanding plantings and dispensing more fertilizer on fields to increase crop yields since ag prices have jumped due to money printing by the central bank, weather-related issues worldwide, and supply chain issues.

The Dutch bank warns, higher prices will curb purchases of fertilizers.

“Matched against the furor of trade and geopolitics, fertilizer prices will near the equilibrium under which relative value creates demand destruction,” analyst Matheus Almeida said.

Bloomberg lists several factors driving up the costs of fertilizer, include “elevated freight rates, increased tariffs, higher energy costs and supply constraints for nitrogen, potash, and phosphate.”

It’s unclear how long fertilizer prices will remain at 9-year highs, but increased farming costs will put upward pressure on food prices. So much for the “transitory” narrative the Federal Reserve and mainstream media continue to pedal.

In early March, we quoted Citi’s commodity desk who expressed optimism in the agri space. At the time, they pointed out: “We remain positive on all Ag names, and our rank order is MOS, NTR, CF, CTVA, and FMC.”

Chairman of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote said in June that, “Apart from meeting the domestic demand, we are going to be able to earn quite a lot of money exporting the goods to the South American countries.”

The news will be good to the ears of Dangote Fertilizer Plant. https://www.google.com/amp/s/moneycentral.com.ng/markets/article/dangote-to-benefit-as-fertilizer-prices-hit-near-decade-high/%3famp

Another cause of food shortage, but those with first class in Economics, Accounting, Budgetary and Auditing will come here to tell us otherwise. Nothing under buhari has not added price and becoming too high for the common man.
