Fertiliser consumption in the UK (Annual Summary)

Fertiliser consumption in the UK based on BSFP findings, import and export trade data, and on sales data.

Quantities in '000 tonnes (kt) of mineral fertiliser nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5) and potash (K2O) used on farms in the UK since 1965 are shown in the table (see related documents below), which is reproduced with permission from the British Survey of Fertiliser Practice (BSFP).

These data, which refer to quantities of nutrients not fertiliser products, are based on BSFP findings, import and export trade data, and on sales data. They are considered to be the official figures for fertiliser usage in the UK.

Note that the most recent data are estimates.  Data are subject to revision.
