NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I was talking today to Joe Deaux about the collapse of the fertilizer stocks and whether there was an opportunity being created. I think there is.What happened overnight was a statement from the CEO of one of the six largest providers of potash in the world, which collectively control 90% of the world market. CEO Vladislav Baumgertner announced his company, Uralkali would be breaking up its sales venture with another of the big seven providers in Belarus -- Belaruskali. He predicted that potash prices would plummet to under $300 a ton by the end of the year, a 25% drop from current prices.
