Mid Winter Fert Buzz

OK guys, I'll take the bait. What have you been hearing from your dealers with respect to fert pricing for this coming season? Both fert+pre and straight fert. Far worse pricing than last year? Trending up? Trending down? Buy now or else?

Urea has actually went up the last two weeks now after remaining stable for the fall and early winter. Looks to continue that trend going into spring. Pre emergents that were bought by distributors last fall or recently should be close to or at last years pricing for the spring.
