Fertilizer Update by Rob FritzPricing continues to remain stable. MAP has now dropped and is priced similarly to DAP, and potash has remained at the same price point. I look for this trend to continue, barring any surprises in the market or market issues. Urea pricing out of the terminals continues to be very attractive when compared to the liquid forms. 10-34-0 supplies are short. However, pricing is stable. Lock in your 10-34-0 soon to prevent a supply issue in spring. Call us for more information at 1-800-274-3389. Click here to send Rob an e-mail.
Equipment Tips by Mike Bemboom
On-Farm Bulk Fertilizer StorageOn-farm storage for bulk fertilizer can help you out in a variety of ways. First, you might be able to buy your tank for a better price if you can take it before the season starts. When demand is low, supply is usually high. Also, you don’t have to set your application schedule around when the tank can be delivered. You can find tanks ranging from less than 100 gallons to tanks that will hold over 3,000 gallons. Some are vertical, some are horizontal, and many of them can be set on trailers to make them mobile. That means there is likely a tank out there that will work for you.
