2012/13 WE HOPE WE WILL SEE YOU SOON AND YOU WILL JOIN US ON THIS AMAZING TRIP!! Potash is a common name used for mined and manufactured salts. Potash is mined from the ground and is used to produce fertilizer. Saskatchewan is the largest producer in the world! It is very easy to get to in the Saskatchewan mines so it has a very low production cost.
Saskatchewan has about 50% of the worlds known reserves, and at the current supply rate could meet the world's needs for several hundred years. In 2011, potash sales were approximately $6.7 billion and is a big part of Canada's economy.
