Bloomberg reported that weaker global demand may cause OAO Uralkali, the world’s largest potash producer by volume, to cut third quarter production.

Mikhail Stiskin, an analyst at Troika Dilaog, stated:

The strength in agricultural commodities has not yet filtered through to a firmer supply demand balance in potash, and there are indications the underlying market remains pretty soft.
