The Russia-Ukraine War’s Impact on Global Fertilizer Markets

Higher fertilizer prices and/or a shortage of fertilizer supply resulting from the war in Ukraine will not have an immediate impact on food prices and/or food production. Currently, the fertilizer market in the northern hemisphere is relatively quiet. All transoceanic flows for the upcoming northern hemisphere spring season have already taken place, and movements are now primarily at the local level: from the import ports and/or domestic production locations to farm fields.

The first crop-growing regions to be ‘at risk’ are India and Latin America...

Ukrainian City Kherson Falls Under Russian Control

The Russian invasion of Ukraine entered its eighth day today. According to Ukrainian officials, Russian forces took control of the southern port of Kherson on Wednesday, a key harbor on the Black Sea. Ukraine’s entire Black Sea coast is in danger of being captured by Russia, potentially sequestering Ukraine from worldwide trade.

Both Russia and Ukraine are major exporters of grains including wheat and corn. Disruptions to shipments out of the Black Sea region can fan the flames on food inflation and aggravate concerns about the cost of living for consumers across the world. 

In an update provided by Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense earlier this morning, it was reported that Russian forces were still attempting to reach the northern outskirts of Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city. The Ministry of Defense added that Russian attacks were continuing in other cities including Chernihiv, Kharkiv, and Okhtyrka. Talks between delegations from Ukraine and Russia were scheduled to resume at 3 p.m. Moscow time on Thursday...

President Biden Addresses Russia-Ukraine War in State of the Union Speech

President Joe Biden delivered his first State of the Union address Tuesday evening and highlighted several pressing topics including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the ongoing pandemic, and the nation’s economy.

In his speech, President Biden stated “[w]e are inflicting pain on Russia and supporting the people of Ukraine. Putin is now isolated from the world more than ever,” adding “[t]ogether with our allies–we are right now enforcing powerful economic sanctions.”

Global sanctions have been imposed against Russia in an attempt to castigate Russian President Vladimir Putin for his aggression against Ukraine. The sanctions are taking aim at Russia’s stocks and currency, along with the country's transportation and energy sectors. President Biden explained “we are cutting off Russia’s largest banks from the international financial system”, and “choking off Russia’s access to technology that will sap its economic strength and weaken its military for years to come.” 

In yesterday’s address, Biden confirmed that the United States will join other countries including the EU and Canada in prohibiting Russian planes from its airspace...
