Russian Federation - Fertilizer consumption per unit of arable land

15.7
(kilograms per hectare)
in 2014

Between 2011 and 2014, fertilizer consumption in Russian Federation was decreasing on average by 0.52 % each year, although before that, it grew from 11.8 kilograms per hectare in 2005 to 16.4 kilograms per hectare in 2011.

Fertilizer consumption measures the quantity of plant nutrients used per unit of arable land. Fertilizer products cover nitrogenous, potash, and phosphate fertilizers (including ground rock phosphate). Traditional nutrients--animal and plant manures--are not included. For the purpose of data dissemination, FAO has adopted the concept of a calendar year (January to December). Some countries compile fertilizer data on a calendar year basis, while others are on a split-year basis. Arable land includes land defined by the FAO as land under temporary crops (double-cropped areas are counted once), temporary meadows for mowing or for pasture, land under market or kitchen gardens, and land temporarily fallow. Land abandoned as a result of shifting cultivation is excluded.
