Fertilizer Prices to Hold/Fall Soil Sampling

Fertilizer Update by Rob Fritz

The fertilizer market is looking to stay the course in the short term, unless something crazy happens in the grain markets and supply chains. I expect to see P prices to hold because if we see a price lowing the producers will export product to limit domestic supplies, which will hold the market up. The only product that we could see some price drops as we go through the fall is potash. Currently we can pick up K at the twin cities for $360.00/ton.







Equipment Tips

Fall Soil Sampling

Wheat harvest is in full swing, if not finished in some areas, leaving many fields of wheat stubble. Between now and soybean or corn harvest think about getting soil sampling done on those wheat fields, or any other open field, while you have time. Soil sampling is very simple and there are tablet and phone apps that help walk you through setting up farms, fields, grid sizes and take you right to the sampling points in the field. Sending samples in to be analyzed is easy. The results are usually back to you in about a week which should give you time to get with your agronomist and plan any fertilizer applications this fall.
