Bangladesh: Russia-Ukraine War Impact on Fertilizer Supply and Use in Bangladesh

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BG2022-0008

Bangladesh consumes approximately 6 million metric tons of chemical fertilizers annually, of which about 80 percent are imported. The four major imported chemical fertilizers in Bangladesh are urea, triple super phosphate, diammonium phosphate, and muriate of potash (MOP). Russia and Belarus were the dominant suppliers of MOP in Bangladesh. Post sources indicate that the Russia-Ukraine war could result in a MOP supply shortage and higher domestic prices of fertilizer in the upcoming Boro/Rabi crop season in Bangladesh.
