This article highlights the increase in German fertilizer and salts company Kali and Salz's full-year operating profits to €278 million on a year-on-year basis as of March 2007. Higher prices for fertilizers and the inclusion of the Sociedad Punta de Lobos Group (SPL) in the salt business segment boosted earnings in 2006, according to the company. The potash and magnesium products and compost business segments were able to grow their revenues primarily through higher fertilizer prices, the company added.
