Fertiliser Price Tracker

Even higher prices and remember the organic boys don't have a total failure because they don't fert, and lower fungicides and blah blah blah
If everyone went organic and cut yields. In reality most people will buy fert and most have good yields so the boys who have poor yields wont get £500/t to compensate. I bought N a few weeks ago when it looked expensive and people called me daft but now it looks not so bad. I dont need P and K next year levels are good enough. At current prices im not sure what id be buying. Personally on a mixed farm if everyone has poor yields and all short of feed i wont be able to afford to compete to buy in feed. The extra on fert is the cheaper option especially if store animals crash due to lack of feed and i have full clamps to finish cheap animals. ( wow thats nearly a glass half full thought ) 🤣

So by panic buying you are helping how exactly?

this market is running despite the UK, been saying it for months, (granted didn’t forecast it getting to this much of a sh!t show globally) watch it get worse if China bans urea exports.
There is not enough N to go round globally.
With bog roll and petrol there is enough just people decided to hoard and thus over emphasise demand. I don’t know of anyone hoarding fert, if anything most consumers are short.

lower rates at these levels to ensure what/if you buy is economically effective.

I used to mow for a guy who was going to go organic, first year yields were nearly as good as with the fert, second not so good third was very poor, I'm sure for those on heavy land with good om levels a year of a few less kg wouldnt cause a huge drop in yield.

Did the oil refineries and bog roll factories close tho?? Heard that George Eustice said in Manchester yesterday that the lack of fert may be a good thing for the uk to hit climate action targets. It seems most people couldnt care less about fert other than a small percentage of the population producing food
surly if we don't use fertiliser the carbon footprint of the food will be higher as there is less yield to water down the fixed carbon costs (establishment , seed production, chems, harvest) but it wouldn't surprise me if they weren't looking at the bigger picture. food comes from the supermarket after all.

I looked yesterday, not gone up much.
if Urea is up 100% and AdBlue is 32.5% urea one would expect AdBlue to be up 32.5%... but then the materials are only part of the cost of production, a 100% rise in Urea price probably adds closer to 10% to AdBlue price? There may also still be producing on old stock urea with the jump in price still to filter through to the retail price?

Old news but:
Yara raises industrial prices, cuts agreed tonnes
24 Sep 21, 12:55 - Fertilizers Ammonia DEF/AdBlue Nitrogen Urea

London, 24 September (Argus) — Norwegian fertilizer producer Yara will implement a temporary price surcharge for its industrial customers on certain products and suspend all minimum take-or-pay and exclusive supply obligations, effective from 1 October, it said today.

Yara will increase its sales prices for ammonia by €200/t, urea by €180/t, and nitric acid by €60/t. AdBlue prices will be increased accordingly by €58/t, equivalent to €63/1,000 litres of AdBlue, up by 30-35pc on prices at the start of September, as reported by buyers.

These actions follow its 40pc curtailment in ammonia production owing to higher gas prices, announced by Yara on 17 September.

"These temporary price surcharges are necessary to cover costs and protect our production system," Yara president of industrial solutions Jorge Noval said.

Yara will also temporarily suspend all minimum take-or-pay and exclusive supply obligations from 1 October.

These actions are being taken to maintain "reliable supplies to our customers wherever possible", Noval said, and "Yara will continue to monitor the situation closely and review [these] measures on a monthly basis.

Apparently one company are increasing prices by £30 ton at mid day so others will follow
nick…

not surprising, it has been a busy morning on the Dutch gas futures. Levelled of abit now at 17% up on the day. Expect a busy afternoon after a belly full of herring.
