TOTAL FERTILIZER CONSUMPTION DOWN 10 PERCENT

Fertilizer consumption in the United States and Puerto Rico during the year ended June 30,
1975 is placed at 42.5 million tons, down 10 percent from the 47.1 million tons consumed during
the 1973-74 fertilizer year and 2 percent less than the 1972-73 tonnage.

Primary nutrient content (nitrogen, N; phosphate, P205; and potash, K20) was 17.5 million
tons, down 9 percent from a year earlier. Nitrogen consumption decreased 6 percent to 8.6 million
tons; phosphate usage dropped 12 percent to 4.5 million tons; and potash at 4.4 million tons was
down 13 percent. The total analysis of plant nutrients increased from 43.01 a year earlier to
43.11 in 1975.

The five leading States in order of total fertilizer consumption and the change in consump-
tion from last year are: California, down 4 percent; Illinois, down 5 percent; Iowa, up 2 percent;
Texas, down 24 percent; and Georgia, down 8 percent.

Mixed fertilizer accounted for 48.3 percent of the total fertilizer consumption. Primary
nutrient direct-application materials accounted for 47.3 percent of total use, and secondary
nutrient and micronutrient materials represented 4.4 percent.

Fertilizer consumption represents all commercial fertilizer tonnages sold or shipped for
farm and non-farm use as fertilizer. Materials used in the manufacturer of registered mixes or
for uses other than fertilizer are excluded.

MIXED FERTILIZER CONSUMPTION DROPPED 15 PERCENT

Consumption of mixed fertilizer containing two or more primary plant nutrients was 20.5
million tons during the 1975 fertilizer year, 15 percent less than the preceding year. The
average analysis for mixed fertilizer was 10.07 percent nitrogen, 17.95 percent phosphate, and
12.42 percent potash. The analysis for the preceding year was 10.10-17.75-12.66. The total
analysis of plant nutrients in mixed fertilizer decreased from 40.51 percent a year earlier to
40.44 in 1975.

DIRECT-APPLICATION MATERIALS CONSUMPTION DOWN 5 PERCENT

Usage of all direct-application materials decreased 5 percent during the 1974-75 fertilizer
year to 21.9 million tons. Primary nutrient materials (N, P205, K20) accounted for 20.1 million
tons of the total compared with 20.9 million tons a year ago. Secondary nutrient and micro-
nutrient materials decreased from 2.1 million tons in 1974 to 1.9 million tons in 1975.

Nitrogen materials (excluding organic) used for direct-application decreased 2 percent to
14.2 million tons. Phosphate materials totaled 2.2 million tons, 5 percent less than the previous
year, and all potash materials at 3.2 million tons were down 8 percent from last year. Tonnages
of natural organic dropped 19 percent to 0.4 million tons.

MICRONUTRIENTS SOLD FOR FERTILIZER

Sales of selected micronutrients for use in fertilizer were obtained from known primary
producers. These tonnages presented in the elemental form in Table 7 indicate increased tonnages
for iron and molybdenum, and a decrease for copper, manganese and zinc.

DATA SOURCES

This report, compiled by the Crop Reporting Board of the Statistical Reporting Service, is
based on fertilizer tonnage reports prepared by State Fertilizer Control Officials and the volun-
tary response of more than 1,500 fertilizer manufacturers, blenders, and sales outlets.
