Western sanctions on Russia in April have hampered the supply of fertilizers to the world. Product shortages and high prices for natural gas, which is a major component in fertilizer production, have led to rising prices. According to the World Bank, fertilizer prices have risen by almost 30% since the beginning of 2022, following an 80% increase last year.
