In summer 2013 Uralkali withdrew from the Belarusian Potash Company (BPC), a joint trading venture with Belarus fertilizers producer Belaruskali. The decision of Uralkali to withdraw from the JV and change its strategy led to a collapse on the potash fertilizers market. The conflict around Uralkali eventually resulted in a change of majority shareholders of the Russian fertilizers producer.
