Fertiliser Price Tracker

Just be careful before rushing off to buy cheap uncoated urea for 2023 and beyond. The window for applying uncoated in the future is very tight. https://www.nfuonline.com/updates-a...310322&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=bulletin

if you use urea on cereals and osr it should be on by the end of march for it to be productive

all the trials where urea has been significantly lower yielding than ammonium nitrate are when the timing for application is is in april or may
do proper trials with urea 2 to 3 weeks earlier and urea is more cost effective

the biggest benefit of the continuation of the use of urea will be in keeping AN priced competitive with imported urea every farmer will benifit

We’ve used AN in March as it was forecast dry, we will use urea in April if we are likely to get 10mm of rain within 3 days of application. Urea can still evaporate in Feb/March, I guess we cannot be trusted to efficient managers of our resources.

This is rubbish. It totally depends on the circumstances. I very often spread urea before a shower of rain in April or May

And if Urea gets regulated out then CF fertilisers have knocked out a major competitive product

You are more likely to get rain than here in the dryer part of the country
you are likely not to have limestone chalk based soils
spreading before a rain reduces losses to the levels of AN but it needs to rain


over here all the evidence is that earlier applications of urea are comparable to AN and losses minimal
niab and others has a lot of data that was submitted to defra to back up the nfu lead defence of urea
every farmer will befit from this paid for by members and subscribers and farmers /industry levy

Not just this, but on many heavy land farms out this side of the country you're often lucky if you can get a tractor on the land in March without making a shocking mess.

Here we are today, on a wet drizzly cool day with an "arctic blast" due on Thursday.....but in a few years time apparently this still doesn't make urea acceptable in RT's eyes.

Strange that they are happy with leachable AN being applied though.

They are a menace to us and to society as a whole no benefit!

You will still be able to use inhibited urea

Farm-safety-640x360.png
The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) alongside the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP), has named new farm safety champions and commended the outstanding work on farm safety that has been carried out in the farming community in the last 20 years.

Two of these champions are Malcom Downey, retired principal inspector for the Agri/Food team in HSENI and Harry Sinclair, current chair of the Farm Safety Partnership and former president of the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU).

Improving farm safety is the key aim of HSENI’s and the FSP’s work and...
