In the period between the first of July 2012 and the last of June 2013, 680 000 metric tons of inorganic fertilizers were sold for agri- and horticultural purposes in Sweden, representing an 11 % increase since the year before.
The absolute majority of the sold fertilizers consisted of straight nitrogen fertilizers and composite NPK-fertilizers, together amounting to 95 % of the sold weight. Among the straight nitrogen fertilizers, 84 % consisted of compounds with a nitrogen content of 24–30 %, while the sales of NPK-fertilizers was fairly evenly divided between fertilizers with varying composition.
The average concentration of each nutrient in straight nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers was 26.2; 20.0 and 33.4 % respectively. Composite fertilizers containing the respective nutrient had average concentrations of 22.1; 3.9 and 7.6 % for each of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
While 59 % of the total amount of nitrogen was sold in straight fertilizers, the overwhelming majority of phosphorus and potassium was sold in the form of NPK-fertilizers. Practically all of the sold sulphur was sold in straight nitrogen fertilizers or in NPK-compositions.
