Sanctions on some potash fertilizer imports are being temporarily lifted which should help ease shortages.
The US Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets controls is providing a reprieve on sanctions on potash fertilizers imported to the US from Belarus through April 2022.
The National Corn Growers Association and other groups expressed concern to the Treasury Department last month that the sanctions were resulting in nationwide shortages.
NCGA President and Iowa farmer Chris Edgington says this is a well-timed and positive development as farmers struggle to secure fertilizer supplies. He says farmers should not have to suffer for the trade practices of foreign government or for disagreements between multi-national corporations.
