Israel’s exports of potash rose by 50 percent in value last year, from $83 million in 1979 to $124 million in 1980, but by only 11 percent in tonnage, to 1.3 million tons. The larger financial increase was due to higher prices on the world markets. The government-owned potash works at Sodom on the Dead Sea are completing plans to hike production by another 450,000 tons a year.
