Shipments of ammonium sulphate within Canada decreased by 7 000 tonnes to 138 000 tonnes in the first quarter of the 2021/2022 fertilizer year, down 4.8% from the same quarter a year earlier.

Over the same period, shipments of ammonium sulphate to the United States increased 23.7% to 120 000 tonnes.

These trends were consistent with shipments of several other fertilizer products, as demand was strong south of the border.
