Continued farm expansion, especially for rice, is expected to propel the fertiliser business of Terragro Fertilizer Co, a unit of Plantheon owned by tycoon Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi. 

The use of chemical fertilisers on various field crops including rice, rubber, maize, oil palm and sugarcane would reach 5.2 million tonnes in 2013, up from an estimated 4.9 million tonnes this year.

Managing director Vuttipong Vungsuntitum said the company would benefit from crop expansion, with sales possibly rising next year by 15% from about 480,000 tonnes this year.
