Ravensdown says its Hornby fertiliser despatch and Canterbury stores suffered minor damage in Saturday's quake.

As a result, chief executive Rodney Green says fertiliser despatch only got back on track on Tuesday, with manufacturing starting later in the week.

Ballance Agri-Nutrients, the other major fertiliser company, says its main depot in Rolleston did not suffer any damage in the quake.
