Market Chatter: Canpotex, Sinofert Agree to 1 Million Tonne Potash Sale at Reduced Price

The Canpotex marketing agency for three of the largest potash producers in Canada has agreed to sell 1 million tonnes of the crop nutrient in the first half of 2013 to a major Chinese customer, The Globe and Mail reports.

Canpotex says the price will reflect a US$70 per tonne decrease in the contract price established in March, 2012.

The agreement is with a subsidiary of Sinofert, China's largest integrated agriculture company and a long-time partner of Canpotex.

Canpotex is jointly owned by Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan, Agrium and Mosaic Corp., a U.S. company with major potash operations in Saskatchewan.
