Therefore, the industry believes that the next round of bidding price in India will be more reasonable and lower prices in the short term will not be malicious. Thus, the establishment of export joint negotiation mechanism is imperative that only joint negotiations in order to protect domestic enterprises, to avoid damage to the interests of lower prices among enterprises, allow Chinese urea export prices more reasonable.

Sound opinion 
Malicious urea prices down no way! 
In recent years, foreign malicious short Chinese urea frequent phenomenon. In mid-June as the Indian urea tender, the lowest CIF price is only $ 266 / t fob China less than the equivalent of 250 U.S. dollars / ton, while the FOB price of urea in this time of international $ 290 / tons. India is a major supplier of urea, urea tender price is lower than in India a large portion of the international market, which is obviously a malicious short Chinese urea, harm the interests of Chinese enterprises. Such phenomenon is worth pondering the relevant departments and enterprises. 
According to the analysis, was able to frequent short Chinese Foreign urea, for two main reasons: 
First, export enterprises have urgent psychological season. This difference is mainly seasonal export of urea caused. China's implementation of urea, MAP, DAP three main export varieties of seasonal export policy, the season lasted eight months, the off-season for only four months. Due to the low season export tariffs, companies want to export more in the off-season, so a few months before the arrival of the season, set in Hong Kong have started urea, urea gives Chinese exports impatient, very, very much the impression of urea become foreign bargain chips. 
Second, domestic enterprises are not united. Domestic urea export enterprises have not huddled, but fighting each other and killing each other, which is one of the biggest lessons of these years Chinese urea exports. To foreign goods, and he took the same order to go around the domestic urea inquiry, to see who's the lowest price, and then on the basis of the lowest corporate discounts would have to ask whether to accept, and so forth, the more talk the more price low. 
So how can we reverse the passive situation of urea export, do not be led foreign investors? 
First, we must hold together. Initially this DAP export situation is relatively grim, early April by the end of March, the international price of diammonium began a slight decline (decline of about $ 50 / t), plus the price way down on last year's export experience in the industry have on exports this year bearish market. But this year the domestic DAP manufacturers huddled and changed the export lower prices, competing export operation mistakes to avoid repeating the mistakes of last year's price. DAP manufacturers of this approach is worth pushing into urea enterprise learning. 
The second is to control production. If the international urea prices are too low, the export does not pay, then we would rather not export, there must be such a man of character and determination to defend corporate interests. Urea is not likely to face short-term export excess production, the product is no place to question. At this time the enterprise must take early repair or load reduction approach to reduce output. 
According to foreign reports, the world's largest potash producer Potash Company, one of Russia's Ural June 18, said the company has lowered this year's production target of about 8 percent, from 1,200 tons to 11 million tons, in order to support prices. International giants can take the initiative to cut production of potash, urea manufacturers why we can not do? 
The third is sold to high-priced markets. Internationally there are many countries and regions need to urea, not just stare at it a market in India, then here cannibalism. Since buyers are aware of India took the same order to the domestic manufacturers everywhere to inquire why our urea manufacturers are not able to exercise a single international markets everywhere, which is good to go out into the market price where to sell it? 
In addition, calls for national adjustment and improvement of fertilizer export policy. China's current export policy is off-season tariffs to 15% lower than the peak tariff, equivalent to reduce the cost per ton of urea exports around $ 200, so many companies are going to squeeze this time window, but also makes playing the lower prices of foreign mind. If China's fertilizer export policy to further improve the timely cancellation of export tariffs seasonal differences, unified annual export tariffs, will be able to promote the domestic and international markets freedom docking.
