Potash Corp. extends layoff of 940 workers

Fertilizer producer Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan[, Canada] plans to extend the temporary layoff of 940 workers who were let go in January.

The extended layoffs come one day after Potash said it is reducing its 2009 potash production by an additional 1.5 million tonnes, bringing the total expected cut of its capacity to at least 3.5 million tonnes this year.
