hearing news (Reuters) that Russia is preparing a "humanitarian corridor" through which grains may be exported from Ukraine

presumably, this may take some of the heat out of the grains / oilseeds markets? In turn, reduce the affordability of fertilisers?

Still don't fully understand why the domestic AN producer managed to sell so many tonnes, even above £725/mt when Urea was, and still is available at the same (+/-) price. 46% for the price of 34.5%.

That's 33.3% cheaper according to my abacus...
Urea isn't the same price as 34.5% AN though is it?

I bought urea at £780 and 34.5% at £645.

The urea was a better buy.

There's definitely not sheds bulging at the seams with N they want out.

Nitram I ordered 2 weeks ago won't be delivered until next week. Waiting for boat to come in.

I'm wanting it to go on grazing land and for 2nd cut silage. Which @£650/t is just going to 🔥 money. Unless fat price rises.
Is that Yara you are waiting on? Just got told the same yesterday and like you, im needing it now. Was no mention of not having any in stock when i ordered it

That's the way to blend fertiliser!!
A couple of years ago someone died from a fert avalanche at Liverpool docks and i think he was in a loading shovel... anyway big warning signs at Immingham for all drivers on how to avoid it.

There's not up here. I'm waiting for the boat to come in.

There not legally allowed to store thousands of tons of AN because of explosion risk.

Remember Beirut.
It is at Immingham a ship arrives with 10,000 t and is offloaded in 2 days into a shed, happens several times a year along with bulk urea, to the other end of the site.

I understand your point but we live in such extreme times who knows what the cost of inputs will be after the crop is planted.
I bought An for £623.50 MT 2 weeks ago now people talk about £715.
last week we paid £710 for some 40-14 So3.
I feel pretty happy with that as we can move on and know what at least some of our costs are for at least some over our inputs. Or we can wait maybe wheat goes mental possibly in the £400 s and would probably be paying £900 plus for An ?
So have you locked your wheat price for harvest 23, or hoping it will rise further to give a decent return? i will make the decision this Oct as to whether to drill or not based on input and grain prices.

A man or woman who speaks like that is very brave or owns their own ground and can live on subsidiary?

Any predictions when fert will drop!?

Nov 23 back to £260/t now.

Won't be long till it doesn't pay to plant crops with AN at £700/t.

I reckon it will be January. I'm stopping buying until sh!t calms down. We are 90% spring cropping though.

It really needs to drop by August if they want farmers to sow winter cereals.

They're probably more relaxed now BOBK has ordered.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
