Download PDF for this date

The first commercial cargo of 4,000 tons of potash from the Dead Sea chemical works arrived in Australia today. A sample consignment last year was found to be high in quality and it is expected that within a short time Israel will be supplying about 50 percent of Australia’s potash needs.
