Yara reduces ammonia production due to the increase

Oslo, 17 September 2021: Record prices for natural gas in Europe are impacting ammonia production margins and as a result Yara is cutting production at several of its plants. Including the optimization of ongoing maintenance, Yara will have reduced by next week around 40% of its ammonia production capacity in Europe.

Yara will continue to monitor the situation, with the aim of continuing to supply customers but reducing production if necessary.
