KING WASHINGTON (AP) -- "This year, we'll be on.the floor . .. as far as all our major nutrients are concerned," is the way the chairman of the Fertilizer Institute assesses the situation during this crucial spring planting period. Joseph P. Sullivan, also pros dent of Esmark Inc.'s Estech chemicals and leather branch, said in a telephone interview this week from his Chicago office that production for all ma- ior fertilizers in the first nine months of the fertilizer year was up 8 per cent but usage was up 14 per cent. To meet the cxtraordinarilj heavy demand generated U.S. farmers '"planting to the fence rows," stocks were down by the end of March to 47 per cent below the year before. Sullivan said that nitrogen supplies now are down to abou three weeks' worth, with phos stocks also a month' needs. "We ought to have two to three month's inventory this point in time." he said. T h e Agriculture Depart ment's latest statement on th national fertilizer situation dicates "some slight improve ment in the . . . supply siti ation. . .. While the total num ber of states reporting tight t u s u a l l y short supplies i essentially the same, a fe\\ states have shifted from 'short lo a somewhat less critica 'tight* supply position." The USDA count showed ni trogcn shortages in 45 states, down three from mid-April; phosphate shortages in 43, down two, and potash shortages in 38. down one. Things arc "Beginning to catch up," Sullivan said, witfi a decline in prmhicer-to-dis- r i b u t o r disappearance in shate and potash under less March compared to (he year before. But the actual problems arc somcwtwl obscured, he and otlKTs in the industry point out because of the movemenl now is from distributor to user and. when a farmer cannot bu: all he \vants. actual demand is mpossible to estimate. The next two months will bt Ihc primary ones for usage, Sullivan said. The phosphate mines are producing better lhan last year, nitrogen production is up and Canadian pntash output has been stepped up. ho added. Imports through March were up 17.2 per cent while exports were up 6.3 pel- cent. "The amount available to the farmer is actually up," he said.
