    Where the hell are you getting N at that price? Closer to urea price with everyone I’ve asked

    Urea + S:
    33n 30s
    38n 12s
    40n 9s?


    Than Import N sounds a very very good buy if it spreads, approx. £40 below the lowest price I've heard of late.

    Product is similar size as Tiger 90 or Brimstone, probably a bit bigger so 28m is no problem. Difference is because its urea in the granule instead of bentonite clay, no dust, and way less likely to break. Also because its plant available quickly, can apply it March unlike Sulphur 90 in my opinion.

    Ballpark price, we sell in 1200kg bags into Canada and the US for $500/USD delivered, so 395 GBP.

    spreadable 21n 60So3 is approx. £220/t in UK at the moment so I think your 11n 75so3 at £330/t might be a bit too dear at the moment, but looks a nice size granule for spreading.

    Yeah I got 2 loads stuck on the shed at 240 too, Lithan admittedly. Thought the market had pulled away up though, so thought 280 was alright. Should I be getting 2 loads at that though?. . . . .

    My guess is yes. Can't see it being cheaper until June and maybe not even then.

    I’ve put 4 loads in the shed because I can only see uncertainty driving it up but more importantly I wanted to make sure I could get the stuff on the land. No good getting it for £40 a tonne cheaper if it’s stuck in a port and you cant get it spread for a month

    I got the call from a central Scotland merchant on Friday afternoon. £25t cheaper than the day before but was a one day only price from them with March payment terms.
    luckily had bought more than our requirements at the start of the fertiliser season between £55t and £60t cheaper than the quoted price earlier in the season.
    would pay to build a shed to store the fertiliser so it could be ordered and stored on farm at a cheaper price. 9 years out of 10 its the early bird that catches the worm....

    But in this package size people are buying more than just the fertiliser. They are buying the ability to buy in small quantities and in easy handling man size packages. It’s not aimed at a man with 300 acres of spuds it aimed at someone who wants to collect small quantise themselves from a local merchant.
    Yara are merely differentiating the market and pricing accordingly. Can’t really criticise them for that; it’s a sign of good buisness.
    Now the price per tonne of a full artic load in 600kg BB is another matter (y)
     
  18. Any prices on 10ton 25 5 5 or cut and graze, ?

    I'm the seller and thank you for attempting to keep me anonymous, but really no need. As others have said completely different market to 'real' farmers. Its much more convenient supplying the person who calls me up wanting a 'bit of fert' for his spuds or horse paddock, you could decant from a big bag but then its messy to sell that part bag on, and you've got the little bags to weigh, it could also make it difficult for us with FIAS. This way in sealed bags from the manufacturer everything is correct and above board. Price wise its a bit like working out the value of potatoes against what Macdonalds charge for fries.

    My post was a little tongue in cheek. Always realise that little quantities/convenience demand a premium, but it was more than I thought it would.

    Lifted half a dozen bulk bags off a lorry for a small holder neighbour while they were at work a couple of years back, paperwork had a card receipt stapled to it, so new what it cost them, that was nearly a 3 figure premium over my artic load, so shouldn’t have been surprised.

    Never done any business with you Dave, but you are just up the road, so should have a look in one day (y)......


    ......... but not for small bag fert :D
