Lack of fertilizers on the market worries grain producers

The grain-producing sector in Bulgaria is very worried about the lack of fertilizers. Farmers make orders for quantities, but traders say they are not available, the chairman of the Thracian Union of Grain Producers Radoslav Hristov told BNR's Radio Staza Zagora. 

Against this background, the price of the most widely used fertilizer in Bulgaria - ammonium nitrate, has jumped three times in recent months. From BGN 350 /EUR 179/ in the summer at the moment it is worth BGN 1,000 / EUR 511/ per tonne. According to Hristov, some traders keep the available quantities in anticipation of even higher prices. The increase in the price of the cake is expected to lead to an increase in the price of wheat.
