Compared with two weeks ago, the prices of NPKs remained basically unchanged, and some market participants did not return to the market after the holidays.
But as China decides on export tariffs for ternary compound fertilizers, suppliers are increasingly worried about increased competition this year, especially in Asia. Pankobirlik, the Turkish sugar Beet Cooperation, has issued an annual procurement tender for 2019, seeking 107,600 tons of NPKs plus the demand for NPKs which contain micronutrients .
Ghana's Ministry of Food and Agriculture is also on the market for their annual tender, and its annual tender seeks 29.5-41.5 million tons of compound fertilizers with ratios of 20-10-10, 23-10-5 and 15-15-15.
OCP has begun to deliver some of the NPS, NPSB and NPSZnB products, which were purchased by EABC in the annual tender last year. The manufacturer has shipped a ship of NPKs and is expected to issue two more ships in the second half of this month.
