ITC upholds fertilizer decision


The International Trade Commission is upholding its decision that U.S fertilizer companies were harmed by Moroccan and Russian imports, and current tariffs will remain in place.

Nancy Martinez, Director of Public Policy, Trade, and Biotechnology with the National Corn Growers Association, tells Brownfield fertilizer represents up to 40 percent of input costs and the decision ignores the impact on corn farmers.

“Phosphate specifically has increased 230% in price from 2020 to 2022,” she says.
