Why Are Potash Corp. (NYSE:POT) Monsanto (NYSE:MON) Mosaic (NYSE:MOS) Slowing?

Potash Corp. (NYSE:POT) Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON) Mosaic Company (NYSE:MOS) have all showed signs of slowing down over the last couple of months, with Monsanto plunging.

Monsanto is easy to understand because of some of their battles in a variety of situation over their seeds, and some negative publicity that has pushed the price down. Also some sales have been lower as well with farmers resisting the pricing of some of their products.

But for all the companies the question is whether the economy is really as robust as it's being made out to be, as fertilizer was expected to rebound nicely and it hasn't seemed to take hold yet this spring in spite of projections.

If demand for their products are slowing, we'll probably see these stocks take a hit or remain somewhat level until farmers are ready to spend money again.
