SAO PAULO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Brazilian trade group Anda,
which represents global suppliers including Nutrien and
Mosaic, confirmed expectations that fertilizer
deliveries to Brazilian farmers could fall between 5% and 7%
this year, citing market analysts and industry estimates.
Ricardo Tortorella, Anda's executive director, told Reuters
in an interview that farmers slowed or canceled purchases amid a
rise in prices sparked by the conflict involving Russia and
Ukraine. On the other hand, domestic fertilizer production is
slated to grow for the first time in 15 years, he said.
