PLYMOUTH, US: The Mosaic Company has announced a reduction of up to 20 per cent in planned potash production from February through May 2012. This curtailment will result in lower operating rates at Mosaic’s mines, but is not currently expected to result in any employee layoffs or material mine shutdowns.

“Cautious dealer sentiment continues to delay purchases and lower near-term demand for potash. Farmer economics remain strong, and we continue to expect an above average application season in North America and record-setting global potash shipments in 2012. While we are confident fundamentals will ultimately prevail, we have taken steps that reflect the near-term supply and demand balance for potash,” said Jim Prokopanko, President and CEO, Mosaic.
