European Commission proposes anti-dumping duties on liquid nitrogen fertilisers

The European Commission has proposed provisional anti-dumping duties on imports of urea ammonium nitrate fertilisers (UAN) from Russia, Trinidad and Tobago and the USA alongside compulsory registration of UAN imports, according to the NFU.

The commission is taking this course of action as it believes that dumping on the EU market is taking place, however European farmers’ organisation Copa believes that it is global price trends that have caused UAN prices to lower rather than dumping, says NFU.

The chair of the Copa Working Party on Cereals Jean-François Isambert said in a statement that the proposed duties would add about €2bn (£1.7bn).80 to the costs of fertiliser in the EU and that farmers will therefore end up paying more for what is already an increasingly expensive input.
