Potassium chloride showed an upward trend
In terms of potassium chloride, there are still some supply prices showing an upward trend. In terms of imported potassium, the supply of goods is relatively sufficient, and the spot resources are mainly concentrated in the hands of large traders, and the price is increased, and the low-cost goods in the hands of traders are gradually reduced. However, some people in the industry reflect that the willingness to accept the current high price is not strong, most of them hold a wait-and-see situation, and the actual transaction is relatively light. The general manager of Guangxi Nanning Zhaofeng agricultural means of production Co., Ltd. told reporters that recently, both white potassium and granular potassium have risen in two waves, with an increase of 150-200 yuan / ton.

Stable operation of potassium sulfate
In terms of potassium sulfate, the current market is waiting to stabilize, the unit operating rate continues to maintain a high level, the downstream demand support is limited, the overall inventory has begun to continue to rise, and the price is mainly stable. Yunnan tobacco bidding announcement issued, need to purchase water-soluble potassium sulfate 3898.625 tons, or will play a positive support to the market demand for potassium sulfate. Ding Weiping said that the Yunnan tobacco bidding had little impact on the overall potash fertilizer market, but had an impact on the potassium sulfate Market. The price of domestic manham process products rose by about 100 yuan / ton. In addition, the rise of potassium chloride is also the main reason for the price rise of potassium sulfate.
In addition, it is reported that some domestic potassium sulfate enterprises are waiting for the phosphate compound fertilizer meeting to be held in the early stage to clarify the price. However, affected by the epidemic situation, the meeting on phosphate and compound fertilizer was delayed, so it was no longer waiting for the meeting to be held. It is understood that the state investment Luo potassium plans to increase 50 yuan / ton. The price of manufacturers producing water-soluble fertilizer by Mannheim technology with potassium chloride as raw material increased by 100 yuan / ton. Ding Weiping told reporters that the contract signed by the State Investment Corporation (SDIC) has completed the sales task of this year, and the products of next year have been pre sold, but the quantity of orders received is controlled.

International potash fertilizer rose slightly
In terms of the international potash fertilizer market, the overall situation showed a slight upward trend, with continuous supply tension in many places, and the demand also increased. Industry insiders reflected that the price of potash fertilizer traders led by the United States and Brazil took the lead in rising, with the increase of 4-6 US dollars / ton. It is understood that the overall import volume of the United States in the second half of the year is far lower than that of the same period last year. Spot supply in many places continues to be tight, and there is a high demand trend in autumn and winter, and the price is bullish. The Southeast Asian market as a whole is in the low season of potash consumption, and the overall price is stable. In the later stage, we should pay attention to the specific situation of Indonesian bidding.
There is still a possibility of upward trend in the future market of potash fertilizer
For the late trend of potash fertilizer market, the current potash fertilizer market, whether domestic or international, has a strong bullish atmosphere. Some people in the industry believe that the downstream demand has not improved significantly, and the enthusiasm of compound fertilizer enterprises in purchasing potash fertilizer is not high, and the procurement is mainly on demand. In the case of low price and scarce supply in the market, coupled with cost support, it is expected that the potash fertilizer market will rise in the near future. Ding Weiping said that at present, there is a general consensus in the industry that potassium chloride drives up the price of potassium sulfate, and manufacturers also hope that this will play a role in promoting the future market of potash fertilizer. Chen Wenzhong, business general manager of Laohekou agricultural means of production Co., Ltd., also believes that the demand for potash fertilizer in spring is relatively large, and the contract negotiation price of potassium hypertrophy this year is lower than that in previous years, and the risk of reserve is relatively small. Therefore, the trade reserves this winter may increase, thus increasing the bullish atmosphere after potash fertilizer market.
