Would everyone that has there fertiliser bought and delivered, would they have normally been sorted at this time in previous years? (Asking for a "friend" that hasn't bought and is hoping for price drop a before april)

I'm waiting for the first person to have put their load over a weighbridge rather than just assuming a "bag" is an assumed weight! :ROFLMAO:
It’s only a matter of time before someone says a merchant has honoured a contracted ‘48 bag load’ with 48 hundredweight…

But in fairness all my AN turned up this week, in full. But then again I was clever enough to ignore the early prices 🤦‍♂️

All this talk of weights in this thread.....based on "a load" being an assumed weight.

I had a load delivered last week with a weight ticket stapled to the delivery note, weigh ticket said 28160kgs, delivery note says 47 x 600kg bags, 28.2T. Will wait and see what is on the invoice, think I can guess!

Bags will be on that weigh ticket too could be towards 200kg short of product

Yes you are right. Never had a weigh ticket with a load of fert before, they should issue you one tho because they are probably fiddling a few kgs on every load

Bought a new weigh cell spreader and his blends from a certain company all came up short by a few kgs per bag. He double checked the spreader and then cross referenced the bags using a borrowed weigh scales and sure enough it was the same. He'd dealt with that company for years so god knows how much he'd been done out of over the years.

I wonder if the grain trade would except a load of grain with no weighbridge ticket just a delivery note stating 20x loadall bucket fulls!!!!!!!

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...
