(Bloomberg) -- The world’s top two fertilizer makers have emerged from a tough crop-planting season in the U.S. very differently: one bruised and the other relatively unscathed.World No. 2 crop-nutrient maker Mosaic Co. reported adjusted earnings that missed analyst estimates for the second quarter, during which the U.S. Midwest was in the grip of the wettest 12 months on record that kept farmers away from fields. The Minnesota-based company was hurt by falling sales volumes and weak margins for phosphate, which is used in nutrients that help plants grow.The firm also reduced its full-year forecast, and analysts say it may have to cut its view again. Shares of the company slumped as much as 13%, the most in six years. The stock has declined 29% this year.Mosaic’s results stand in contrast to Nutrien Ltd. -- the top producer -- which reported earnings and revenue that beat analyst estimates in the quarter. The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based company was aided by higher prices for potash, which forms the basis of a different class of crop fertilizers.New York shares of Nutrien, which have risen about 9% this year, swung between gains and losses on Tuesday. At 10:31 a.m., they were down 1.7%. The company was able to ship its potash nutrient to the U.S. Midwest from Saskatchewan in Canada during the second quarter, helping its results.Mosaic’s phosphate-based product, meanwhile, was stuck in the flooded Mississippi River on its way to the Midwest due to the unrelenting rains in the U.S.Trapped Supply“As a result of weak spring demand and a high level of imports trapped in the lower Mississippi River, market prices remained under pressure and the seasonal price improvement we typically see in the second quarter did not materialize,” Mosaic Chief Financial Officer Clint Freeland said during an investor call.Diverging prices of the two fertilizers also help explain the companies’ differing fortunes. Phosphate has declined by $107 a ton from 2018’s peak in October on reduced fall and spring demand due to wet weather and higher-than-expected imports in the season, Bloomberg Intelligence estimated last month, adding that it could remain under pressure because of new capacity in the second half.At the same time, potash prices last month were $15 a ton higher than a year earlier and $10 a ton above the seasonal five-year price, according to Bloomberg Intelligence, which said strong global demand and a slow ramp-up of new capacity supports a positive outlook.While Mosaic announced in June the permanent closure of its Plant City phosphates facility, Nutrien said last month that it plans $1 billion in investments in Brazil. It will compete in the Latin American nation with Mosaic and Norway’s Yara International ASA, two companies that INTL FCStone Inc. estimates account for 46% of total sales in that market.To contact the reporters on this story: Denitsa Tsekova in New York at firstname.lastname@example.org;Ashley Robinson in Winnipeg (Non BLP Loc) at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Attwood at firstname.lastname@example.org, Pratish NarayananFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Canadian fertilizer dealer Nutrien Ltd is aiming to triple its lendings to U.S. farmers to $6 billion within five years, in a bid to drive up farm supply sales, its chief financial officer said. Nutrien's push to expand farm loans starting this year comes as low commodity prices have depressed U.S. farm incomes, leaving growers less money to spend on seed and fertilizer. "We are trying to provide the fuel for retail to grow," CFO Pedro Farah, a former Walmart Inc executive, told Reuters.
Canada's Nutrien Ltd, the world's biggest producer of potash fertilizer, said on Tuesday that it was evaluating whether to expand its annual production capacity by 5 million tonnes after 2023, around the time that metals miner BHP Billiton is considering a move into potash. In a presentation to investors in Toronto, Chief Executive Chuck Magro said the additional capacity would consist of expansions to existing Canadian mines during the next decade. Its existing mines could put that idled capacity back into service by 2023, taking its operational capability to 18 million tonnes, Nutrien said in a presentation posted online.
Nutrien Ltd. (Nutrien) announced today that its Board of Directors has approved an increase in the expected quarterly dividend from US$0.43 per share to US$0.45 per share commencing with the quarterly dividend having a record date at the end of the third quarter 2019 and until otherwise determined by the Board of Directors. The increase announced today demonstrates the strength of our integrated business model and confidence in our ability to generate strong and growing cash flow,” said Chuck Magro, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nutrien. The declaration, amount and payment date of any future dividends by Nutrien is at the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend on numerous factors, including compliance with applicable laws and the financial performance, debt obligations, working capital requirements and future capital requirements of Nutrien and its subsidiaries, and the increased dividend amount will not impact Nutrien’s previously announced US$0.43 per share dividend declared on May 10, 2019 payable July 18, 2019 to shareholders of record on June 28, 2019.
African swine fever is likely to hurt demand for grains and oilseeds in the next couple of years, the chief executive of fertilizer dealer Nutrien Ltd said on Thursday, the latest threat to a sector already reeling from the U.S.-China trade war. CEO Chuck Magro, speaking at the BMO Farm to Market conference in New York, said agriculture markets will eventually correct themselves from the impact of the disease, which has killed much of China's hog herd. Swine fever (ASF) was first detected in China last August and has killed as many as 200 million pigs, by some estimates.

Agricultural companies like Nutrien, which sells fertilizers and seeds directly to farmers, have already been hammered by trade uncertainty that pushed down crop prices. In addition, an extremely wet spring and flooding in parts of the United States led to a late start to the planting season in North America. Trade disruptions continue to hit North American growers, as U.S. soybean exports to China were down 55 percent year-over-year, while China also placed import restrictions on two of Canada's largest canola exporters, the company said.
