Watch: Seized phosphate shipment heading to trial

Ballance Agri-Nutrients chief executive Mark Wynne says despite one of its shipments of phosphate rock being seized en route to New Zealand, farmers can still expect to get their fertiliser on time.

The phosphate was mined in Western Sahara, a land the subject of a sovereignty dispute.

And it is stuck in South Africa until the courts there decide if it was legally mined.
