This week, India announced to increase the fertilizer subsidies to boost sentiment in the global phosphate market. India has increased the subsidy with more than doubled for DAP and lowered its domestic selling price, alleviating the pressure on farmers, which will boost the import demand.
At the same time, due to the Covid-19 crisis, buyers in India are facing logistical challenges, rising sea freight prices and causing port disruptions. After the announcement of the subsidy, the import demand increased in Pakistan, and the CFR price rose by US$15/ton to US$583/ton.
