About Potash Demand
Potash Fertilizer prices have been moving higher lately, reflecting the demand for the product to increase production to meet the growing demand and offset the grain shortages in the world due to climate change and the world's middle class population growth. Grain Demand has resulted in an 8 fold increase to satisfy the population's demand for more protein products worldwide. Potash price increases have sent the share prices of many potash producers as well as explorers higher in recent months supported by BHP Billiton's recent $39 Billion hostile takeover bid for Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, the world's largest producer.
