Win for Ag: ITC rules against duties on imports of UAN fertilizer
A major victory for farmers and the entire agriculture community: The U.S. International Trade Commission has ruled that imports of urea ammonium nitrate fertilizer from Russia, Trinidad, and Tobago are not harming U.S. producers. This ends the threat of stiff duties on fertilizer imports.
U.S. farmers have been pushing for this outcome. Those areas accounted for 80 percent of all imported fertilizer in the United States in 2021. That same fertilizer now costs four times as much this year.
