Canadian Pacific strike could have huge implications on North America’s growing season
Nutrien says that the Canadian Pacific Railway strike will threaten fertilizer shipments.
The company says, “A CP strike could impact our ability to move potash, nitrogen, and crop inputs to our retail locations across Canada ahead of the upcoming spring application season, potentially reducing crop yields later in the year. The global food supply is already stretched and cannot afford further negative impacts at this time.”
Nutrien is urging the Canadian government to intervene. U.S. ag groups are asking the same of the Biden administration.
