"Rising global demand for foodstuffs, including grain-intensive meat and dairy products, fruits, vegetables and specialty crops, will ultimately translate to rising global demand for fertilizers, including potash products such as muriate of potash (MOP) and sulphate of potash (SOP), according to a new report.

Potash Investing News issued a long-term report of potash prices indicating that an increase in the middle class around the globe will lead the increase in demand for more meat and dairy products. One of the ways to meet this demand is for more potash fertilizer.

Looking further down the road, the expansion of farming in many African nations is positioning the region to one day become an important global supplier of foodstuffs, sector analysts told Potash Investing News. “We submit Africa too has the potential to provide the world with significant food resources,” said Robert Winslow, an analyst with National Bank Financial, “though political risk and infrastructure deficiencies are apt to delay that potential for many, many years.”"
