Traditionally, India has been one of the major markets for Uralkali’s MOP. The Company is engaged in active cooperation with Indian partners as far as it relates to the increase in the quantity of potash fertilisers applied to the soil. We discussed promising initiatives with the Minister as part of measures to improve the nutrient balance of the soil.
