Summary

The sales of fertilizers decreased

The total sales of commercial fertilizers amounted to 821 thousand metric tons during 2003/04, which was a decrease with 3 percent compared with 2002/03. During the last five years the sales have continuously decreased, which means that between 1999/2000 and 2003/04 the sales of fertilizers decreased with nearly 11 percent.

Expressed in plant nutrient content the sales of nitrogen in 2003/04 decreased with 2 percent to 176 thousand metric tons compared to the year before. The changes in sales of other recorded nutrients, phosphorus, potassium and sulfur, were small. The phosphorus fertilizers contained about 105 kg of cadmium.

The downward tendency in the use of nitrogen fertilizers might partly be due to receding profitability in grainproduction during the last few years. On the other hand the area of oil plant cultivation increased by 25 000 hectares between 2003 and 2004 which was approximatly the same as the decrease in the grain area. The use of nitrogen normally is higher for oil plants than for grain, and that have to some extent neutralized the tendency of decreased consumption.

The item "Fertilizers" in Input Price Index showed an increase by 8 percent during 2003/04 compared to previous year. This item reflects the price changes for the mix of fertilizers that was used past year.
