Market Comments

The cropping season in East and Southern Africa occurs from November to April, so most fertilizers were already in-country and applied or well down the distribution channel before the impact of Covid 19 began.

There are adequate fertilizer stocks in-country, from carryover stocks and imports. Commercial farmers are not importing some types of fertilizers because there is a significant drop in demand for horticulture and flower exports.
