The leader of The Fertilizer Institute does not expect any severe fertilizer supply chain problems this spring. Jason Troendle tells Brownfield there are often temporary problems with transportation and logistics, but what farmers need should be available. “The good news for growers is that we have a robust domestic industry. We also rely somewhat on imports, and so going into this spring, It’s just going to be about communicating, being sure your needs are known for the retailer so they can be sure they have the product there, but from our perspective, what we can see, the products should be available.”
One concern Troendle has is how much fertilizer has made its way upstream from New Orleans because of low river levels.
