The U.S. has been impacted by the Russia-Ukraine conflict in several ways. Farmers are keeping a close eye on fertilizer and its supply chain during these times.

Gaji Balakaneshan, COO at Midwestern BioAg, says their company briefly halted fertilizer sales amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. They did this to get a handle on supply and pricing. Balakaneshan talks about the fertilizer supply chain and what farmers should be focusing on.

If people want more security, Balakaneshan says farmers need to bring this issue up to their legislators.

Farmers currently face record-high fertilizer prices heading into this year’s growing season.
