CENTRAL, Hong Kong - June 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Russia started a large scale invasion of Ukraine. As a result, NATO partners imposed a barrage of economic penalties. The oil and gas industry has received a lot of attention, especially in terms of how the disruption of Russian gas supplies would affect central Europe. On the other hand, the worldwide agriculture industry has been severely hit. Ukraine is commonly referred to as Europe's "breadbasket," and both Ukraine and Russia are key global providers of agricultural goods such as wheat. In response to the violence, wheat futures have risen to a 14 year high.

NTR is the world's largest fertilizer manufacturer. According to some analysts, Russia's invasion and annexation of Ukraine might impair worldwide supplies of potash and nitrogen agricultural fertilizers. This has prompted a mad dash to NTR. It's worth noting that Western sanctions haven't yet targeted Russian fertilizer firms. Due to rising inflation, food security is already a serious worry in the West. This might deter NATO partners from enacting any prospective penalties. However, the rush to NTR and other potash producers will continue.

As of this writing, NTR's stock has increased by 60% year over year. On February 16, the firm announced its fourth quarter and full year 2021 results.

We recommended that investors seek this top TSX stock back in late 2021. In fact, the corporation had a really good year last year. NTR's revenues increased by 79% to $7.26 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. Meanwhile, adjusted net profits per share increased by more than 900% to $2.47. The company's adjusted EBITDA increased by almost 220% to $2.46 billion.
