WTO and FAO Highlight ‘Fertilizer Crisis’

The World Trade Organization and United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization are calling for urgent action to address the global fertilizer supply. The two groups have released a study about the current volatility in the fertilizer market and the impact on food security. Fertilizer shortages are expected to continue into 2023 and threaten food security, especially in places like Africa that are depended on imports. The study urges all G20 nations to make every effort possible to keep the fertilizer markets open.
