A Little more about Potash and the Company

So What is Potash?

Potash (/ˈpɒtæʃ/) is some of various mined and manufactured salts that contain potassium in water-soluble form.[1] The name derives from pot ash, which refers to plant ashes soaked in water in a pot, the primary means of manufacturing the product before the industrial era. The word potassium is derived from potash.[2]

 

Potash is produced worldwide at amounts exceeding 90 million tonnes (40 million tonnes K2O equivalent) per year, mostly for use in manufacturing. Various types of fertilizer-potash thus constitute the single largest industrial use of the element potassium in the world. Potassium was first derived in 1807 by electrolysis of caustic potash (potassium hydroxide).[3]

 

Who is the Potash Corp?

The Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, also known as PotashCorp, was a Canadian corporation based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The company merged with Calgary-based Agrium to form Nutrien, in a transaction that closed on January 1, 2018.[4]

 

The company was the world's largest potash producer and the third largest producer of nitrogen and phosphate, three primary crop nutrients used to produce fertilizer. At the end of 2011, the company controlled twenty percent of the world's potash production capacity, two percent of nitrogen production capacity and five percent of phosphate supply.[5] The company was part-owner of Canpotex, which manages all potash exporting from Saskatchewan.[6] It also had a joint-venture with Sinochem named Sinofert. In late 2013, it was 60%-owned by institutional shareholders.[7] In 2007, the CEO, William Doyle was by far the highest earning CEO in Canada, earning $320 million.[8]
