Poland increased its fertilizer purchases from Russia in July more than threefold – up to $20.2 million, RIA Novosti wrote on September 21, citing statistics from Polish agencies.
The agency noted that Russia supplied $6.2 million worth of fertilizers to Poland in July 2022 against $20.2 million in the current year. In 2022, Russia was in sixth place among fertilizer suppliers to Poland; in 2023, it came in second place.
Germany was the leading supplier, exporting $22.6 million worth of fertilizers to Poland, followed by Lithuania in third place with $13.5 million, France in fourth place with $8.3 million, and the Netherlands in fifth place with $8.1 million.
In April 2022, Poland sharply reduced fertilizer purchases from Russia – they fell 20 times, but since June, supplies from Russia began to grow. In 2022, Warsaw purchased $225.1 million worth of fertilizers from Moscow, compared to $360 million a year earlier.
In the first seven months of 2023, Poland imported $97.6 million worth of fertilizers from Russia, a quarter less than a year earlier in the same period.
