Fert Prices

Apr 14, 2019 | 20:50 1 I have watched Farm Futures weekly fertilizer review all winter and the always suggested fert. price was softening a bit as the winter went on. I have heard that dealers on the west side of Sask had dropped a little but i don't think our dealers on the East side have moved at all that I know of. With spring getting close I figured I better get some bought.
This is what I am being quoted

Phos- 775.00

Potash- 490.00

Bendable sulfur- 530.00

Sulfur fines- 475.00


NH3- .55 /lb. with a tank

They will deliver at that price.
What are others finding? Reply With Quote

For the potash is that MOP 0-0-50? If so what is your SOP price ?
Here in west Australia MOP is about $600/t or so depending on volume and SOP is close to $1000. Reply With Quote

Are you not organic???
Why would you even follow the absolutely evil fertilizer industry? Is it not absolutely toxic as well ? Reply With Quote

Look up "sulphate of potash mines in western Australia". Dry lake beds, as long as no contaminants are present its all good. Good place to invest Reply With Quote

That's too salty. Inhibits NUE and water use efficiency. Its cheap compared to SOP but that's what you get Reply With Quote

Because, as we all know, plants can tell the difference between a fertilizer that is certified organic and one that comes from the evil fertilizer industry. Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 19, 2019 | 07:21 12 Deal on 11-51 in Feb picked up depo in Yorkton.

    650 then it dropped to 635.

    It came from Turkey i think and pearled very nice.

    Here locally the S15 has dropped some.

    We were played by the buying last fall and xmas. Again. Reply With Quote

  • farmaholic's Avatar Apr 25, 2019 | 11:39 13 One of those crop years where I will have paid more for N & P last October than the last quote I got for spring prices.

    Geez....good thing I took it and paid for it because logistically the system couldn't supply and transport all the fert needed for the spring seeding season, sure glad to give them money 7 to eight months in advance of needing the fert to help the supply and logistics system....and get rewarded for it at the same time....sarcasm.

    Apr 26, 2019 | 22:10 16 Was told today that US is having difficulty with barge traffic in Mississippi and is pulling loads out of Canada, expecting $70/t increase so who knows what or who to believe. I'm all bought up, just asked for fun. Reply With Quote
    farmaholic's Avatar Apr 27, 2019 | 07:06 17 I said it felt like 2008 all over again when I was buying last fall, although to a much lesser degree.

    My supplier said I could have paid well below $500/tonne if I had bought in July/August of 2018 and taken delivery in Sept.

    So instead I probably paid $100/tonne more last Oct/Nov and now it's cheaper than that price I paid.

    I mentioned the flooded Mississippi to him and seemed he had to think about the ramifications.....if the wholesale industry has trouble barging fert up from New Orleans....where do you think it is going to come from?

    He assures me spring prices are stable!

    Can I have that in writing please? Reply With Quote
