July 6, 2011
– Agricultural Chemical companies are posting a noticeable increase in profits this year as farmers are earning more money due to higher grain prices. Prices of corn, a crop that requires much fertilizer, hit a record high last month on tight supplies. The Bedford Report examines the Agricultural Chemicals Industry and provides stock research on Converted Organics, Inc. (NASDAQ:COIN - News) and Rentech, Inc. (AMEX:RTK - News).

Last month the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA) released its medium-term Fertilizer Outlook 2011-2015. The report says that fertilizer markets for the main nutrients -- nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) -- have fully recovered from the downturn in 2008/09, and argues that the improved environment provides a strong basis for long-term investment in additional capacity in order to respond to rising demand in the agricultural sector.

The IFA outlook asserts that three important factors are driving this surge in investment: the willingness of fertilizer companies to increase local transformation of raw materials, pressures from governments to reduce their respective import reliance on fertilizers supply and the industry's responsibility to prepare for the future and provide adequate plant nutrients to increase productivity sustainably.
Both Converted Organics and Rentech focus on sustainability. Converted Organics manufactures all-natural fertilizer and soil amendment products combining disease suppression and nutrition characteristics from food waste and other raw materials, while Rentech provides alternative and clean energy solutions and manufactures and sells nitrogen fertilizer products.
