The open fall season allowed farmers to finish harvest on a timely basis. Mosaic Manager of Crop Nutrients Curt Woolfolk says farmers also took advantage of the weather and put down fall fertilizer. “We’ve got a bit of a good problem. We’ve got more demand than we’ve got supply so we’ve been working very closely with the rail lines, the barge companies and the truck companies to make sure the product gets out there.” Woolfolk says the active hurricane season had a bigger logistical impact on the fertilizer industry than the pandemic. Mosaic is introducing a first-of-its-kind phosphate fertilizer called Susterra. This product provides up to 15 percent recycled organic matter, promoting microbial activity in the soil.
