The article presents an update on the fertiliser industry in Great Britain as of October 2007. The increase in prices of nitrogen and ammonium nitrate is expected by December due to continued increase of global urea prices. Further increase in potash prices is also expected to have an impact on compound fertilisers. It mentions the new joint venture between Terra Nitrogen and Kemira GrowHow called GrowHow UK, which represents less than 1% of global market share.
