Region – Fertilizer is the new political stability issue

Europe will spend the winter debating its previous dependency on energy from Russia. Latin America should be rethinking its dependency on fertilizer from Russia and elsewhere outside the hemisphere.  Analysts knew this was a potential issue in February and March when Russia invaded Ukraine.

Six months later, it’s increasingly relevant. Fertilizer access and price is an issue that will impact Brazil’s election, Peru’s political stability, Argentina’s economy, and Colombia’s relations with Venezuela.
