Stag, I have spent a great deal of time in India over the years and have a good sense of what is happening there. Poverty is still rampant despite what the media has shown in recent years. High priced potash, not subsidised by the government is beyond the economic reach of most uneducated farmers despite the obvious benefits of higher yiels. Farmers cannot pass the extra costs onto consumers like here. People are already starving. Higher potash prices often translate to higher production costs and higher food prices even when yields have increased.

  If potash is the be all and end all then why is demand decreasing. Explain this for me, please. I beg you to share your vast knowledge on this subject without putting up some report on this or that, but usually corn.
