Fertilizer pricing

As has been noted before, we are seeing some movement in raw material costs. N is moving up, P & K are moving down very slightly. Organic matter is steady.

What are you guys hearing?

Same thing here!

N has already gone here about a month ago. No big movement...but it has started in the wrong direction!

I read that China and India bought the rights to quite a bit of surplus about a month ago for spring 2010 trying to catch it on a dip. It has probably skewed the surplus numbers, it is the old supply and demand thing

Yes it is, and the fact that China seems to be pulling out of the recession faster than we are.
