Poland tripled the import of Russian fertilizers
In July 2022, Poland purchased fertilizers from Russia for only $6.2 million. This year, the volume of imports increased to $20.2 million. The leader in the supply of fertilizers to Poland is Germany ($22.6 million). Lithuania ranks third ($13.5 million), Finland is fourth ($8.3 million), and the Netherlands is fifth ($8.1 million).
The reduction of purchases of Russian fertilizers by Poland began in April 2022. Their volumes have dropped 21 times in a month. But since June last year, imports of Russian raw materials have started to grow again. For the whole year, Poland bought fertilizers from Russia for $225.1 million against $360 million in 2021.
However, over the seven months of 2023, Poland imported Russian fertilizers worth $97.6 million. This is a quarter less than the same indicator last year.
