Executive Summary

Primarily used in the agriculture industry, fertilizer is applied to increase crop yields. This allows farmers to utilize land more efficiently, producing higher yielding crops for the available land, increasing their earnings per acre. This renders fertilizer essential to farmers and an important product amongst buyers.

The Canadian fertilizer industry faced a downfall in the year 2010 and 2011. However, by 2016, the industry is predicted to have progressed by nearly 30%. Nitrogen (N) is the largest segment of the fertilizer market in Canada, accounting for over half of the of the market's total value. The industry produces about 24 million tons of nitrogen, potash, and phosphate fertilizers annually in some of the most technologically advanced and safest facilities in the world. Its economic activities contribute $76 billion annually to the national economy, with domestic farm gate sales valued at about $42 billion a year.

Canada exports fertilizer materials to more than 70 countries including 95% of its potash production. About 12,000 Canadians are employed directly by the fertilizer companies, working in mines, production plants, laboratories and farm supply outlets.

Many more jobs exist in related supply and service industries, such as road, rail and marine transport and food processing. Fertilizer is the third highest volume commodity shipped by Canadian railways. Potash producers alone pay $300 million a year in federal and provincial taxes.

Since last two decades, the industry has achieved a 10% reduction in emission levels even though total production has grown by 39%. These improvements make the Canadian fertilizer industry one of the most efficient in the world. Compared to other nitrogen fertilizer producing regions, Canada is 7% better than the global average.

The biggest players in the industry are Agrium Inc., Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. and Migao Corporation.
