Market Comments 

In Burkina Faso, the fertilizer market remained dynamic in terms of transactions for agro-dealers. The general trend of sales has been on the rise for most formulas such as NPK 15 15 15, NPK 14 23 14, and Urea.

Subsidized fertilizers such as NPK 15 15 15, NPK 14 23 14 and Urea were sold at a fixed price of 12 000 FCFA per 50 kg bag, unlike commercial fertilizers whose prices varied according to the cost of supplying certain formulas. In Koupèla, the low procurement costs resulted in a decrease of 2,500 FCFA in Urea minimum price (14,500 FCFA compared to 12,000 FCFA in October). The price of NPK 14 23 14 decreased by 1000 FCFA in Kaya (from 18000 FCFA to 17 000 FCFA).

With sales expected to decrease at the end of the rainy season in the coming weeks, retailers are hoping for good market crop to boost their revenues.
