Russia Uralkali potash output down 71.5 pct in Dec

MOSCOW, Dec 25 (Reuters) - Russian fertiliser producer Uralkali’s (URKA.MM) output of potassium chloride (potash) fell 71.5 percent in December to 129,900 tonnes from 456,600 tonnes in December 2007.

Output in the whole of 2008 fell by 6.4 percent to 4.8 million tonnes from 2007. “The cut in production was a result of the current adverse situation in the world market for potash fertilizers, fuelled by the global financial downturn,” it said. (Reporting by Aleksandras Budrys)
