Nutrien boosting potash production

Nutrien is increasing potash production by one million tonnes to 15 million because war in Ukraine is reducing supplies.

Nutrien has six mines in Saskatchewan capable of producing up to 20 million tonnes per year.

“This is the most potash we have ever produced, an increase of nearly 20 per cent” from its output in 2020, the company said on Twitter.

The majority of that additional volume is expected to be produced in the second half of the year, the company said in a release.
