National Farmers' Federation

Submission on Ruralco Holdings Limited (Ruralco) proposed acquisition by Nutrien Ltd (Landmark)

Any situation in which a single firm dominates the market for a particular agricultural
input is likely to give that firm excessive price-setting power. If farmers and agribusinesses
have limited or reduced access to alternative sources of inputs, it increases the ability of the
dominant firm(s) to raise prices in the knowledge that their customers have no alternative
suppliers. The NFF does not view this as healthy competition.
