ITC rules against fertilizer duties

The U.S. International Trade Commission has ruled it will not impose tariffs on nitrogen fertilizers imported from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago.

The ITC’s decision comes after CF Industries filed a petition late last year to have the commission place tariffs on urea ammonium nitrate.

In a news release Monday, NCGA President Chris Edgington praised the ITC’s ruling and said the tariffs would have driven up input prices even more and crippled supply.
