Beans, beans and beans. Don’t use fert in grass anyway. As for the cereals, I have about half normal use in old bags at the back of a shed. May just stick with that. Tbh, I would say normally (when N was infinite and cheap) I didn’t give anything like enough allowance for the manure 🤔
So what happens next year , I'm out of stock after this harvest m so Spain is the alternative

Anyone else tempted to buy some more whilst we actually can ?
Seems like France, with Vichy Macron calling for appeasement, and Germany, with their reliance on gas, are now surrendering Ukraine to Putin.
Will that make the fertiliser situation better or worse ???

pretty soon, there's going to be a big gap between Granular Urea and local Nitrate prices.

the problem will be logistics; getting it here in time for application within Q1

same's true locally with AN - top-up tonnes all coming from one domestic plant in the North East of the UK, for now, at least. It's being shipped around the UK to various ports, at massive cost, to ease the logistical problem. This then limits the facilities where imported AN can be handled, due to the strict storage and handling laws.

Egyptian FOB levels, in a temporary illiquid market, have dropped over $100/mt, seeking out a price level where they'll find buyers. There's a big value call to make - it depends how long you can wait to receive the fertiliser? No good to pay less but not get it in time is it?

I'm pretty much bought up, and being on liquid can't buy for 2023 harvest, I could buy bagged I suppose, 🤔 but I have no idea which way the market will go. :(

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...
