BRASILIA (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Moscow was offering Brazil fertilizers on good terms.

The Russian companies are already doing business in Brazil, one of the largest markets for fertilizers in the world, selling potash and nitrogen for companies who prepare and distribute formulations for farmers.

In September, Russian fertilizer and chemical companies Uralkali and Uralchem agreed with Fertilizantes Heringer SA to become controlling shareholders in the Brazilian firm now under bankruptcy protection.
