Informa Australia is delighted to announce the Australian Potash & Phosphate Conference held on 22-23 November at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Perth.

Global demand for fertilizer is rocketing due to food security concerns, which is expected to drive significant market growth.

The Australian Potash & Phosphate Conference will explore the latest world demand and the rising opportunities, investments, as well as the number of projects underway that will continue to support the growing demand.

“The war in Ukraine and the ongoing pandemic have critically hit global supplies of phosphorous, an essential resource in producing food, which can affect Australia’s ability to feed its citizens… Global phosphate (phosphorous fertiliser) prices have spiked 400 per cent since early 2020 due to supply chain disruptions, export bans and sanctions” – SBS, June 9, 2022

“Sanctions have strangled the supply of potash – a key fertiliser for agricultural crops such as corn, soy, rice and wheat – from Russia and Belarus, which together account for about 40 per cent of global output.” – Financial Review, May 17, 2022

“Global spot prices for potash hit a 13-year high of around $650 per tonne in December, after a spike in crop prices and a demand recovery this year. The record price for the fertiliser was set in 2008 when supply deals were signed at around $800 per tonne.” – Mining Dot Com, March 2, 2022

Topics will include:

  • Overview of the global outlook
  • Geopolitical update, and what this means for the fertiliser industry
  • Government perspectives & initiatives
  • Opportunities in Australia
  • Updates from operating and proposed mines
  • Gas shortage crisis affecting the sector
  • Urea & Ammonia fertiliser
  • Hydrogen’s role in creating fertiliser
  • Investment opportunities to strengthen the sector
  • Social license, community & stakeholder engagement
  • Green approach to producing fertiliser
