Argus receives gold award for its North American fertilizer service

Houston, 5 July 2013

Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus has won a gold award in the 10th annual Trade Association Business Publications International (TABPI) competition. Its weekly Argus FMB North American Fertilizer received the award for best e-newsletter.

The annual TABPI business-to-business (B2B) competition received over 500 entries this year from across the world. TABPI seeks to promote publishing excellence by recognizing the industry’s best output and encouraging innovation among publishers.

"Wonderfully thorough, effortlessly simple and very effective,” were some of the comments highlighted by the judging panel.

Argus FMB North American Fertilizer was launched in July 2012 in response to industry demand for robust pricing information and market analysis. The service goes beyond the day-to-day action of the market to offer critical insight for business decision makers. It brings clarity to often complex fertilizer markets and includes high-impact graphics to highlight relevant statistics and figures.

Fertilizers are a critical component of global food security, and while North America is considered a mature market with advanced practices, the regional fertilizer market is dynamic and evolving. Argus FMB North American Fertilizer capitalizes on Argus’ in-depth understanding of global commodity markets to bring its readers an unparalleled context to market movements. The service incorporates relevant market data, including analysis of natural gas, ethanol and biofuels, as well as crops.

“We are honored to receive TABPI’s gold award for Argus FMB North American Fertilizer,” Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said. “Since it was launched, the industry has widely endorsed the service for bringing transparency to the constantly evolving North American fertilizer market.”

Argus provides in-depth coverage of international fertilizer markets in a variety of market services including Argus FMB Ammonia, Argus FMB Nitrogen, Argus FMB Potash, Argus FMB Phosphates, Argus FMB Sulphur and Argus FMB Sulphuric Acid. For more information visit
