U.S. Potash Import Reliance

According to the, “MINERAL COMMODITY SUMMARIES 2016-2017,” by the USGS, by the end of 2017 the U.S. will be 95% import reliant on potash. In the last 12 months US potash production has dropped by 70%, or just under 1,000,000 tons per year as a result of low, depleted ore and the world’s highest operating costs.

The United States is at a level of Net Import Reliance that it hasn’t experienced since World War I.

The major import sources include:  Russia, Belarus, Canada.


There is one critical mineral responsible and necessary for sustainable agriculture and food production: potash.


It has no known substitutes and it is one of the highest Net Import Reliant minerals in the United States.
