Currently, the three Saskatchewan based potash producing companies own Canpotex which handles the marketing and distribution of Potash. The Potash Corporation accounts for over 50% of the sales volume of Canpotex. If Potash is sold, it is believed the new owner would have no interest in maintaining the current relationship. The idea is that Agrium and Mosaic are more reliant on Potash than vice versa. If Potash is taken over and the partnership is broken up it would force the three companies into competition rather than cooperation.

The dismantling of the monopoly would likely adversely affect revenues for Saskatchewan. However, the increased competition would benefit consumers and farmers in the form of lowered prices. Visit us at to understand the catalysts and forces driving or affecting the agricultural chemicals industry in today's economic environment.
