its quite a simple question/answer.
as fert prices are high, and could go higher, less will be used, which means less product on the world market, if some countries restrict exports, or like Ukraine cannot sell it, the amount of available product, on the world market, will have more customers, chasing insufficient supplies, and that means higher product price.
And, product has to be bought, whatever the price, people cannot live without it, its a win win situation for growers. And yet many farmers seem to be very concerned about not using it, and producing less product. Get a nice big -sorry bad - weather event, in a major cereal growing area, and prices will rocket.

I would agree. But I think farmers are worried because the futures prices don't reflect that at the moment. This time next year they probably will.....but it's a big risk to take when the signal isn't there yet.

I think that the choice would be much easier if there was no fertiliser available to buy, rather than it's a record high price. Everyone would be in the same boat with no control so no mental torment.

Sods law it would be this country which has the weather event, so instead of 50 k of N lying on the ground struggling I could have 200 K,,,,,,,,,,,, oblivion if the weather plays us a cack hand

By the way, a drop of rain would do nicely now please 😁🙄
