| Preview


A rapidly expanding domestic fertilizer market and a desire to capitalize on indigenous raw material deposits have resulted in Mexico's rapid emergence as a major factor in the world fertilizer market. During the past decade, fertilizer use in Mexico has nearly doubled, exceeding 1 million t of plant nutrients in 1978. Major gains have also been registered in fertilizer production, with total output estimated at over 1.65 million t of nutrients in 1978 versus only 0.7 million t in 1970. The purpose of this report is to draw attention to one country's approach to meeting its farmers' needs for increasing fertilizer needs and to examine the impact Mexico's industry development plans will have on its position in the world fertilizer market
