Bangladesh: Russia-Ukraine War Impact on Fertilizer Supply and Use in Bangladesh

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BG2022-0008

Bangladesh consumes approximately 6 million metric tons of chemical fertilizers annually, of which about 80 percent are imported. The four major imported chemical fertilizers in Bangladesh are urea, triple super phosphate, diammonium phosphate, and muriate of potash (MOP). Russia and Belarus were the dominant suppliers of MOP in Bangladesh. Post sources indicate that the Russia-Ukraine war could result in a MOP supply shortage and higher domestic prices of fertilizer in the upcoming Boro/Rabi crop season in Bangladesh.

In 2023, Bulgarian imports from the United States surpassed the $100 million mark for the first time. The growth was due to a substantial increase in Bulgarian imports of U.S. beef, tree and ground nuts, food preparation, whiskies, animal feed, and wood.
Following three consecutive seasons of tight supply, favorable fall and winter conditions have been followed by abundant spring precipitation across Spain, with the notable exception of the eastern part of the country.
