Farmers had been stingy during the previous year due to struggling crop prices. However, a recent drought in Russia has hurt wheat supplies, helping grain and oilseed prices grow. Also, the growing use of ethanol as a fuel has caused corn prices to skyrocket to over $6 per bushel. These positive market conditions have once again enabled farmers to take the necessary steps to ensure they are receiving maximum crop yields, namely the broader use of crop nutrients. Visit www.stockcall.com/ to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

One concern for the sector is weather conditions. If they show drastic improvement, the subsequent higher crop yields will push fertilizer prices down.
