High income OECD countries Compared by Agriculture > Fertilizer consumption > % of fertilizer production

DEFINITION: Fertilizer consumption (% of fertilizer production). Fertilizer consumption measures the quantity of plant nutrients used per unit of arable land. Fertilizer products cover nitrogenous, potash, and phosphate fertilizers (including ground rock phosphate). Traditional nutrients--animal and plant manures--are not included. For the purpose of data dissemination, FAO has adopted the concept of a calendar year (January to December). Some countries compile fertilizer data on a calendar year basis, while others do it on a split-year basis.
