Has anyone ever had anything to do with this fertiliser screenings before, sounds to cheap at £320 ton, no analysis with it, just wondering what it’s like

Blend screenings are basically the dust and spills from around a blending or bagging plant. I’ve had some in the past , sold with no spec and I had it analysed myself at 9.10.10, paid about £70/t in 2019

It depends what has be running through the plant what you end up with.
