Fertilizer Update by Rob Fritz

Nitrogen is continuing its steady move upward in price.  Urea is currently priced competitively with anhydrous ammonia.  P and K are holding their prices steady.  I expect the nitrogen to continue to trend upward, and P and K should remain steady.

Fire Safety in a Dry Harvest

Combines are starting to harvest corn in some areas due to the dry conditions, and that is creating a lot of dust and potential for fires.  Make sure you take the necessary precautions in case of a fire.  Have a fire extinguisher or a compressed water canister close enough for quick access when you’re out there in the field.  Be safe.

Pricing for all products is for the most part available and supplies are good at this time.  Look for increased pricing, especially in the nitrogen market.  I expect P and K to increase, but not significantly between now and fall.

Benefits of Late Season Tiling

Even if you weren’t at the Ag PhD Field Day this year, you probably still know that wheat is coming off the fields. Also, more and more growers are getting their silage cutting done. It might sound odd because of how dry it has been lately, but now is a great time to get some tile put in those corn and wheat fields due to the warm weather and ideal ground conditions.
