“Consolidation in the world’s fertilizer industry continues. Although the global economic collapse has left many traditional corporate raiders humbled, if not penniless, recent prosperity in the fertilizer industry continues to fuel consolidation. This blog will focus on the current skirmishes in North America which the press has characterized in a number of ways. A Wall Street Journal blog used the headline “Love Triangle”. Developing this theme we concluded that “Congo Line” might be a more appropriate handle, but we feared that both would have attracted the wrong attention. We finally settled on “Fertilizer Wars”, a concept originally used by The New York Times’s Deal Blog. Our goal is to provide a fair and balanced selection of press clips and links to timely articles on the current consolidation of the fertilizer industry in North America; with space for independent commentary from all segments of our industry.”
