Certain Fertilizers Can Lead to Tremendous Growth

Following the likely breakup of the Belarusian Potash Corp cartel, the potash fertilizer market was thrown into a frenzy.

Being leveraged so highly to nitrogen-based fertilizers paid off handsomely for the company. What else should investors be looking at in this space given the new market dynamics?
