April 27 (Reuters) - Potash Corp of Saskatchewan's quarterly profit nearly doubled as lower costs and increased potash sales volumes more than offset weak phosphate prices.
The company's net earnings rose to $149 million, or 18 cents per share, in the first quarter ended March 31, from $75 million, or 9 cents per share, a year earlier.
However, revenue fell 8 percent to $1.11 billion. (Reporting by Swetha Gopinath in Bangalore and Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Editing by Sriraj Kalluvila)
