ABSTRACT
This article focuses on an announcement made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Interagency Agricultural Projections Committee that imports of fertilizer are expected to lessen the impact of rising natural gas prices on the farm sector. The committee said in its February 2005 Agricultural Baseline Projections that while tightness in the U.S. natural gas market is expected to persist for the medium-term, the resulting price volatility will likely have only modest implications for the farm sector because of increased imports of fertilizer.
