Nov 1 (Reuters) - Potash marketing company Canpotex said it signed a five-year deal with Korean chemical company Unid Co Ltd (014830.KS) for at least 400,000 metric tons of potash a year, clinching its second deal in less than a month.
Pricing will be at competitive rates based on market conditions in Korea, Canpotex, the overseas potash marketing arm of Potash Corp POT.TO Mosaic (MOS.N) and Agrium AGU.TO, said.
On Oct. 20, Canpotex signed a three-year deal with China’s largest fertilizer maker Sinofert Holdings (0297.HK) for at least 3.15 million tonnes of potash, with pricing to be negotiated every six months. [ID:nSGE69J0L7]
