N, P, K, S Prices?

Sep 11, 2019 | 09:29 1 Heard a phosphate price the other day of $600 per MT take it home in December.

What dose everyone know in their area? I think we should see a decline given the economic environment we are in.

Sep 11, 2019 | 09:48 2 Whats the excuses they will give for prices this year....

1. The american farmer didn't fertilize as much in 2019 so they will be causing a shortage when they ramp up more usage...

2. Farmers have all this moisture ...might as well grow as much as you can fertilize more......grow more make less...I lose on every bushel but I make it up on volume....hahahaha Reply With Quote

    Sep 11, 2019 | 16:35 7 Any retailer that phones about fert , ask them if their company has lobbied on farmers behalf to get the federal Liberals to address the tariffs that are crushing crop prices and limiting our markets??
    Be interesting to hear the reactions .
    Mosaic, Nuttrien , Cargil , P&H , Richardson’s , any of them ... ask what have they done to help their customers whose net profits are being decimated by Liberal inaction on a huge issue ??
    Again there has been basically nothing from the Ag Industry to help lobby this b/S going on .
    No one seems to give a shitte .
    Just think that all is good , cost for fert is up and life is good .

  • Sep 11, 2019 | 16:52 8 Got a text today from a grain company....
    #2 HRSW at $5.65 !!!!!! Feed is at $4.50 and dropping .
    Book fert now to save !!!
    Lol .... WTF ?????
    I just sent a reply .... would you work for 50% off your pay check ????
    Canola stumbling around $9.50 to $9.60 .... run the math on those numbers with Sask crop insurance average yields.... then add increased input costs , carbon tax’s and at least a 20% increase in repair costs ...

    Last year we got $6 for feed with falling numbers below 275 .. and barely broke even . Well breaking even is like working all year for zero pay check at the end of each month .
    In sask , crops will be average to 80% of average for the most part , meaning zero crop insurance payouts for most , even with GARS .
    It’s the loss in the value of crop market prices , and dropping prices for low quality grains that’s going to kick producers right in the teeth .
    Will be interesting to see what happens in the months to come .
    Also this huge canola surplus is still b/S ... it’s not there , never was .

    Not throwing in the towel yet but the current situation may be worse than having no crop at all . And last year we started getting snowed on at this time but at least prices stayed somewhat reasonable and fert was an ok price . Reply With Quote

    Good point 👍
    I have seen both good and bad crops of organic and commercial fields.
    Organic farming has its place , but so does Commercial farming . Each to their own 👍👍 Reply With Quote

    Yup ...I haven't figured this expansion of potash out....the big boys are shutting in production while others want to build and what happened to the BHP Janzen?????

    The big boys let the juniors find the resource and then buy them out???? Reply With Quote
