Quoted today for 60 tons, 50 of which 34.5N and 10 tons 21/8/11+7S or 20/10/10/7S

Big brand N £282
Big brand 21/8/11 £317

'Imported' N. £267
20/10/10 £282

I've no idea whether these prices are as good as possible or not. They needed at least two artic loads for that price apparently. Payment March/April/May, which is included but adds a couple of quid I guess.

£235 I make it. Never had much luck with urea here. I find much better performance from the same N applied in Ammonium Nitrate form. Could be that the urea evaporates as ammonia more readily or something. For that reason I've avoided it for the last 15 years or so.

We've not used any straight AN for a few years (10) and with the last 2 dry springs its been hard to get the Urea on before any rain. So with that and Brexit looming I though I'd try and help the British boys out by using AN for around half of our application. Having been told prices were coming out at around the £170-180/ Tonne mark...……. I thought that sounds ok I'll have a bit of that but don't put my name on any until you have a firm price. Well when the price or British was announced it was £230 and about 6 weeks after I'd bought 5 loads of urea.

Anyway I still need 2-3 loads and was quoted mid £260s last week for imported AN. If it gets below £250 I'll buy some if not I'll wait until we need it.
 
I think the current urea fall is more to do with the strength of the pound against the dollar than anything else
Where both come into play when suppliers are buying vessels - It's a tad late now for any more UREA vessels to arrive into the U.K. SO! It goes from the worldwide market & £/$ strength to more of a local war depending how much stock suppliers are carrying. I'm sure suppliers will not be keen to have sheds full of UREA come late springtime. The price drop you are seeing currently is to do with suppliers wanting rid of their stock. I wouldn't be surprised if it came off a tad more, however be wary that prices may increase if stock does become short.
