been told it's going to rocket in price, as we now compete with the EU. If it doesn't sell in quantity, we may find out if that is true, or not. But we hear the same old story, every year, and never know if it's right or wrong ! We hedge, half in dec/jan, the rest in may, with the transport shortages, like to make sure some is in the shed, for when we want it.

:scratchhead: Going to have to explain that one to me, when didn't we compete with the EU for fertiliser? Whilst in the EU did they just feel sorry for us and send over shipments of Lithan and Pulan cheap because they felt sorry for us or something?

when don't we hear all sorts of excuses, for higher prices, availability etc, brexit provides a 'new' excuse, one they haven't trotted out before.

I’ve done that in the past, but our more modern loadall won’t allow such a sharp drop. So been using a wrecking ball technique swinging them into other bags…not getting as good results though 😂🙈
I just let it slip off the hook, clean concrete incase of splitting bag but haven't done that yet.
