NITROGEN North America 2017 Press Release


Conference Scheduled for May 16/17, 2018 Luxor, Las Vegas

Keene, NH – March 14, 2018 – Macro supply forces emanating from the dramatic nitrogen price surge of a decade ago are impacting the North American markets.

North America has added new nitrogen product capacity in a dramatic fashion: 4.5 mln mt of urea, 3.2 mln mt of ammonia and 4.2 mln mt of UAN (urea ammonium nitrate) per annum are now pressing on the markets. This new domestic capacity has redrawn market ranges of key producers and outlets, impacted prices, renewed the significance of supply chains, and left a lot of unanswered questions.

A co-production of Green Markets and IHS Markit, the NITROGEN North America conference brings together expert insight from both agricultural and industrial sectors to uncover the future of critical nitrogen markets.

Join this expert panel May 16/17 at the Luxor, Las Vegas to uncover current thinking, challenge conventional wisdom and look to the future of these critical and interdependent nitrogen product markets.
