Fertiliser Price Tracker

will The close down for uk fertiliser factories reduce the need to shut down next year for maintainance

gas will get cheaper and co2 may be higher priced in future

the problem of finding alternative sources is that they have to be clean enough
fertiliser plants using gas have no contaminants
gas power station only operate when the electricity is needed
when demand for electric is low and renewable is producing a lot the gas is easly shut down cutting off production of co2

Bought mine the day CF made their announcement and was told November delivery.

Phone call yesterday, first load arrives today…!

I realise someone will always be top of the list, but it does make me wonder how much they really have sold.

This I’m afraid is partly true. It’s the later delivery that was never given a firm price by CF that they have effectively reneged on.
How can something that was never priced be reneged on?

I have heard of an agronomy group who carried on selling despite terms having been pulled, so they are having an interesting time themselves I guess.

As I understand it CF were told the tonneage required and the delivery months requested and they accepted that they would put that in as orders and price when they had terms for those months. Effectively it was a trust order in my opinion. They, however, have now said they will only honour the deliveries up to the spot months they had priced for. Not much point in putting a buying pool together if you only get the spot price on the day of order. I do though think communication obviously wasn’t great either.
 
From what I am hearing, most of the urea has now arrived in the UK, so those that have urea purchased should be absolutely fine. However, most of the urea on these vessels will be committed for existing orders, and I do not believe there are many additional vessels lined up for the UK, but this could change. Interesting times.
