Per tonne fresh when I was using. Standard broiler litter Nmax application was 8t/ha 240kg/ha @ 30kg/T.

When we applied layers muck, was about 11-12t/ha dependent upon analysis. The best is broiler-but unless used on farm, often ends up burnt or AD plants for power gen.

Does anyone know of anyone actually buying at these prices?

No real talk of fert with anyone I've been chatting to and no interest until spring. And thats at prices nowhere near those, with axan at 440, and no one buying it.
Ashamed to confess I buckled… angry at myself more than anything for not buying more forward.
urea @£720 and sulphur £230 for early osr.
Price is utterly crazy but more concerned about the first timing
 
Love it how the fert boys on here continue to talk the prices up,I think most that have panicked will have bought by now(myself included)but the ones with big balls will sit it out,I do think and hope that they are right, don't see much more new fert sales until prices ease,as for shortages,the fert boys would have us believe it's scarce but I would rather it came from an independent source.
I think most from the trade have tried to deliver accurate information and a view on the market. Most have been encouraging growers to buy early, as we could see where prices would go - I'd take that as good advice, not scaring farmers. We are part of a global market and it looks tight until Q2 '22. Despite gas prices softening, urea prices in Egypt, the U.S and Brazil moved higher. Prices WILL drop, but it's looking increasingly doubtful for this season. Add into the mix haulage issues (this is widely reported in the media before I get accused of scaremongering) then spring deliveries will be tricky. I would imagine it's going to take a number of weeks to deliver up outstanding orders.

P.s trying to cancel orders when you've committed to buy is terrible and should not be tolerated.

I still don't seem to be seeing many prices for Nitram at the moment. Are they actually selling any or are they just producing it to fulfill earlier orders?
Don’t forget the Govt handout to CF only lasts til Jan ? ( might be Feb )
Then they said CO2 users were to have found alternative suppliers
So
No guarantee CF will continue to produce after then

The problem is that we hear these reasons to buy early every year. It would help if those in the industry didn't cry wolf so often and we might believe you a bit more. The really annoying bit is I think that you are right this time. Prices here have been going up at the same steep rate as worldwide prices. When worldwide prices do drop (which could well be sharply) I doubt if it will fall as quickly here.

Fuel companies seem to do this quite regularly.
No shortage of lorries on the roads around here so
must be getting bums on seats ,something must be happening.

My final load of urea is arriving today, will be pleased to have it in the shed (almost) regardless of price. Average price 89 pence per kilo.
Now, where can I buy some glyphosate?

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
