LONDON, April 3, 2013
LONDON, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Global food demand has been rising on the back of increasing population and
rising income levels in emerging countries. Agricultural chemicals companies
such as Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc. (NYSE: POT), Mosaic Co. (NYSE: MOS),
CF Industries Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CF), and Intrepid Potash Inc. (NYSE: IPI)
have benefited immensely over the past decade from this trend. As farmers look
to improve yields to meet rising demand, the outlook for agricultural
chemicals companies remains bullish. On Tuesday, though, shares of all four
companies struggled as the Basic Materials sector posted significant losses
despite a rally in the broad market. StockCall has released full comprehensive
