). COVID-19 has affected all the supply chains that connect farm production to final consumers in the United States. Farmers have faced a shortage of agricultural inputs, including fertilizers.New York, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "United States Fertilizer Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06067780/?utm_source=GNW As China is one of the major producers and exporters of nitrogenous fertilizers to the United States, when China imposed a lockdown, there was a huge fertilizer shortage in the country owing to problems with transportation. Prices hit an all-time low due to trade pressures and regulatory challenges.The application of nitrogen fertilizer is proportional to the cereal yields. According to the US Department of Agriculture, the country has expanded the farmlands to plant 94 million acres of corn and 85 million acres of soybeans which will be resulting greater consumption of nitrogenous fertilizers in 2021 supporting the domestic crop production in the country. Thus, with the increasing demand for nitrogen fertilizers, the United States has increased its export potential, and it is anticipated to become a globally important exporter of nitrogen products in the coming years. Furthermore, the rising population and limited arable land in the United States have led to higher dependence on fertilizers to meet the growing demand in the country.Key Market TrendsGrowing Demand for the Fertilizers in the CountryThe US population is increasing at a rapid rate with 330 million in 2020. This growing population is adding to the food demand. Hence, there is a need to increase agriculture productivity in order to supply food to the growing population. According to the World Bank, arable land (percentage of land area) in the United States is around 17.24% of the total land in 2018. Further, there is a little scope in arable land expansion in the coming years. These factors have stimulated the demand for the fertilizers in the countryAccording to the FAO, the demand for nitrogen fertilizers increased and was recorded as 14,594 thousand metric ton in 2019. The demand for phosphate and potash fertilizers grew at higher rate, by 1.07% and 1.41%, respectively, during the same period in the region. The higher demand for phosphate and potash fertilizers is attributed to the increased consumption of fruits and vegetables in the past decade in the country. The nitrogen fertilizers have the highest share in the US fertilizers market owing to the production of cereals, such as corn and wheat, in the country.Thus, the rising population and limited arable land in the United States have led to higher dependence on fertilizers to meet the growing demand in the country.Grain and Cereals Dominate the MarketThe application of fertilizers in the grains and cereals segment of the US fertilizers market was valued at USD 6,715.7 million in 2020, and it is estimated to reach a value of USD 7,526.9 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 2.0% during the forecast period.According to USDA, wheat, corn, rice received about 40% of the nitrogen, phosphate, and potash fertilizers in 2020. Corn and wheat were the two most important cereals among them, receiving an ample amount of NPK fertilizers. Fertilizers used on corn, wheat, and rice need to contain nitrogen sufficiently. According to the FAO’s statistics, the area harvested for corn in United States decreased from 35,106,050 ha in 2016 to 32,950,670 in 2019. The decrease in the area of crop harvested increased the usage of fertilizers for improving the yield from available area.A similar trend in lower harvest area was observed in the case of wheat also. As one of the main crops for production and as a main grain for consumption, the lowered area of harvest must be compensated with increased yield, for meeting the domestic and global demand. The adequate use of fertilizer sharply increases the yield. Thus, the fertilizers market is anticipated to witness a significant growth (in the grains and cereals segment) during the forecast period.Competitive LandscapeThe fertilizer market is slightly consolidated, with major companies accounting for the majority of the market. Some of the players opearting in the market are NutrienLimited, Mosaic Company, Yara International ASA and SQM SA. These companies are focusing on R&D, product launches, along with new innovations and partnerships.Reasons to Purchase this report:- The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format- 3 months of analyst supportRead the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06067780/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

NEW YORK (AP) — Ellen DeGeneres is calling time on her long-running talk show. The daytime host, who has seen a ratings hit after allegations of running a toxic workplace, has decided that the upcoming 19th season will be the last, ending in 2022. It coincides with the end of her contract. “Although all good things must come to an end, you still have hope that the truly great things never will," Mike Darnell, president of unscripted TV for Warner Bros., said in a statement Wednesday. "It was and is an indelible piece of the television landscape, and it will be sorely missed.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the news, DeGeneres said that “as great as this show is, and as fun as it is,” it's no longer a creative challenge. "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which started airing in 2003 and is distributed by Warner Bros., has a mix of dancing, games and giveaways along with A-list celebrities. But the host, who built her brand on the motto “Be Kind,” opened season 18 in September with a lengthy apology. Three of the show’s producers exited over the summer amid allegations of a dysfunctional workplace that harbored misbehavior, including sexual misconduct and racially insensitive remarks. While the allegations were “very hurtful to me” they didn't influence her decision to leave the show, DeGeneres told The Hollywood Reporter. "I wouldn’t have come back this season” if they had, she said. Nielsen data shows “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” viewership dropped by 1.1 million people this season, from 2.6 million viewers to 1.5 million viewers. DeGeneres was the recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2015 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom under Barack Obama in 2016. In addition to her talk show, she has had a hand in Fox’s “The Masked Dancer,” NBC’s “Ellen’s Game of Games” and HBO Max’s "Ellen’s Next Great Designer." DeGeneres’s scripted TV show “Ellen” became a historic landmark in TV history in the 1990s when her character came out as gay. Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press

Chile's state-owned Codelco, the world's largest copper producer, announced on Wednesday it would soon break ground on a $1.4 billion project to extend the life of its aging Salvador division thru 2068. The Rajo Inca project aims to convert Salvador from an underground mine to an open-pit, and requires the company first strips away rock covering the mineral deposits, Codelco said in a statement. Codelco is in the midst of a 10-year, $40 billion initiative to upgrade its sprawling but aging mines, which have suffered in recent years from sharply falling ore grades.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden met Wednesday with the four congressional leaders at the White House for the first time and said he wants to reach a compromise on an infrastructure plan, but expectations for a quick deal remain slim despite his history of working with Republicans. This first formal Oval Office meeting for the group — and for Biden and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky — brought together those two deal-makers at a dramatically different political and economic time than in their past talks as Biden pushes his $4 trillion jobs and families proposals. “When I ran, I said I wasn’t going to be a Democratic president, I was going to be president for all Americans,” Biden said at the start of the session. Referring to the gap between his ambitious proposals and what Republicans say they are willing to consider, the president said: “We are going to see if we can reach some consensus on a compromise.” Asked by a reporter how he expected to do that, Biden quipped: “Easy, just snap my fingers, it’ll happen.” The gathering brought together Biden’s top Democratic allies, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, as well as House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy of California. Vice President Kamala Harris sat next to Biden. While it was the first such meeting of Biden’s presidency, the setting drew a familiar White House scene of the powerful party leaders, who can make or break an administration’s legislative agenda, formally arrayed around the president. The mood can be seen as friendly or tense. The last such encounter ended with Pelosi standing to confront then-President Donald Trump. Earlier Wednesday, McConnell had urged the White House to drop its big wish list and work with Republicans on a more modest proposal. “Infrastructure can and should be a bipartisan issue,” McConnell said. He said he hoped the session would bring a “course correction” from the White House for a “dialogue across party lines.” Biden, who was a longtime Delaware senator, and McConnell have traded expressions of friendship, but their ability to find political common ground seems limited. In a capital where Democrats hold control by the slimmest of margins, it’s unclear whether they actually need each other to accomplish their political goals. Republicans have balked at the size of Biden’s infrastructure plan, which moves beyond roads and bridges to dramatically expand the social safety net with child care and other return-to-work priorities, and his idea to pay for it with tax increases on the wealthy and corporations. McConnell has indicated a much smaller package of no more than $800 billion, funded by gas taxes and other fees on users, is within reach for Republicans. In recent days, Biden has opened the door to compromise, saying he was willing to negotiate the size of the overall investment and the tax increases to pay for it. McConnell has made it clear they are unwilling to gut the 2017 tax cuts, which was their signature domestic accomplishment when Republicans held power. But just days before the meeting, McConnell said his goal was simply, and essentially, to halt Biden’s agenda. McConnell said “100% of my focus is stopping” the Biden administration, a comment that evoked his pledge early in Barack Obama’s presidency to make the Democrat a one-term president. Obama served two terms. “I like him personally,” McConnell said later of Biden, softening his tone somewhat. “I want to do business with the president. But he needs to be a moderate.” Biden has long showcased his relationships with Republicans and made his ability to work with the GOP central to his governing philosophy. But a growing number of Democrats believe it is wasted energy, given their view of the GOP as too often obstructionist. Schumer said Wednesday any deal “must be big and bold to meet the changes in the world.” Biden’s most notable dealmaking success with McConnell came in the Obama-era budget showdowns during the rise of the tea party. As vice president, Biden was a trusted emissary to Capitol Hill for Obama, who had a chilly relationship with McConnell. But times have changed, and nearly a decade later it's an even more polarized environment. White House aides were not surprised by McConnell’s declaration of defiance this week but believe that some common ground is possible. Public polling suggests that the infrastructure plan, much like the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief law enacted in March, is popular with voters. But the COVID-19 bill did not receive a single GOP vote. Steve Ricchetti, a senior White House adviser, said Wednesday’s meeting is meant to “focus this conversation to where the priorities are and the space to find common ground.” From there, he said, it will become clearer in coming weeks “when there will be a real accelerated and pretty comprehensive dialogue on all of the elements.” Biden and McConnell have so far had a relationship of necessity. What’s unclear now is whether the president will need the senator’s GOP votes or can muscle passage in the evenly split Senate where Democrats hold the majority because Harris can cast a tiebreaking vote. Aides said Biden planned to stress that democracy itself is on trial and that the nation must prove it can take care of its own as it copes with the health and economic challenges from the pandemic. The president has hosted a trio of key Democratic senators at the White House already this week, including moderate Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona; the White House needs to keep on board for the massive spending. On Thursday, Biden was scheduled to meet with six Republican senators, including Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, to hear their plans for a smaller and more narrowly defined infrastructure bill. Aides said to expect Biden to host more Republicans in the weeks ahead of a soft Memorial Day deadline the White House set for gauging how feasible a bipartisan bill may be. Missing no opportunity, Biden buttonholed Louisiana senators John Kennedy and Bill Cassidy on an airport tarmac during a visit to their home state last week. “I made the point -- not exactly in these words -- that everybody is for infrastructure, nobody is happy with crappy,” Kennedy recalled of the conversation. “There’s a way to do this deal — if the president will limit it to infrastructure and then let’s have a frank discussion about how to pay for it.” Biden’s response? “He listened,” Kennedy said. ___ Associated Press writer Josh Boak contributed to this report.

The County of Stettler council debated the topic of land sterilization during their regular meeting April 14. During the part of the agenda titled “council’s request for information,” Coun. Ernie Gendre voiced concerns about “land sterilization,” noting the recent efforts of a company called Alberta BioBord to buy land near Stettler to build a medium density fibreboard plant. Gendre noted it seemed to him Alberta BioBord had trouble finding suitable industrial land near the Town of Stettler that was not near residences. Gendre asked his council peers if they should consider a moratorium on acreages within a certain distance of towns like Stettler, as the number of acreages appears to be having the effect of discouraging business. Coun. James Nibourg responded to Gendre, noting area structure plans (ASPs) set out future development of regions and the County of Stettler works with the Town of Stettler on such plans to plan ahead for future development. Nibourg also stated that what one person thinks is acceptable, another person may consider unacceptable and disagreements in land planning always seem to be present. Nibourg stated as far as he knows there is lots of industrial land available east of Stettler and “...prices are what they are.” The closer you get to town, he noted, the more the prices go up. Nibourg stated he felt the acreage situation around Stettler was fine. Coun. Cheri Neitz added that she strongly supported working with the town on ASPs because when people buy property they know exactly what to expect in the future when it comes to development. County Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Yvette Cassidy stated that the Intermunicipal Development Plan (IDP) between the town and county is currently being updated. Rural crime Also during the “council’s request for information” portion of the meeting, Coun. Les Stulberg wanted to discuss the issue of rural crime which he said is an ongoing issue and it appears the bulk of the crime involves repeat offenders. Stulberg stated he was concerned criminal suspects benefit from the provincial/federal government “catch and release” justice system. During a recent meeting with Alberta’s Justice Minister Kaycee Madu it was pointed out the Criminal Code (CC) is federal legislation and issues with the CC can only be addressed in Ottawa. Stulberg stated the CC has “so many issues, it must be addressed” and suggested the County of Stettler contact both the provincial and federal governments to voice the concern that the CC appears to be failing rural Canadians and needs to be examined. Stulberg added he knows the system is slow, but at least the county could get the ball rolling. Coun. Nibourg agreed with Stulberg but wasn’t sure how to start the process. Director of Municipal Services Andrew Brysiuk stated a good starting point would be the provincial justice department and the solicitor general. Coun. Neitz also agreed, adding crimes seems to be ramping up again and a lot of repeat offenders seem to be coming back to the Stettler area. Councillors unanimously agreed to send a letter of concern to the provincial government. Brushing concerns Gendre also brought forward his concern about brushing requests, which involves residents requesting the county’s public works department to cut back brush from road right-of-ways. Gendre stated he wanted to know where the county draws the line as it seems a lot of requests have been coming in and also wondered if it was fair to all County of Stettler ratepayers to subsidize those requests. Coun. Dave Grover stated brushing is important as it improves sight lines and road safety for everyone. Director of Operations Rick Green stated Stettler County has a brushing policy which sets priorities, primarily the benefit of the road, noting that clearing brush for new fences is not a priority. Green also stated brushing can be completed more quickly now because there’s no more “burn and bury” and that his department has been able to clear a lot of the backlog. Reeve Larry Clarke stated that councillors should look closely at their brushing level of service in light of the tight budget situation. Gendre added that he felt brushing requests for new fences should be cost-shared with the property owner and shouldn’t be solely carried by the county.
