Yara to explore expansion in Brazil

May 18, 2005
The Anitapolis phosphate reserve is the only major, known reserve in Brazil not yet utilized. The ownership in the Anitapolis mine was part of the transaction when Yara acquired Adubos Trevo in 2000.
 
Brazil has ample available land well suited for agricultural development, is the worlds 4th largest consumer of fertilizers, and is expected to further strengthen its position going forward as an exporter of agricultural products such as soybeans, coffee, sugar and citrus. Yara is through Adubos Trevo well positioned to take part in the continued growth within the Brazilian fertilizer market. A development of the Anitapolis mine will support the growth of Yara's Downstream business segment. A decision and possible construction start for Anitapolis is expected during first half of 2006 with possible production start by 2009.
