    Just wanted to drop everyone a thread about the ever rising cost of Urea.(Nitrogen).

    This will impact the mixed grade fertilizer and the Pre-m's that everyone uses. In some cases the cost will be over $3.00 per bag.

    I can already see it in the Farm side of the Fertilizer industry.

    Just FYI

    This is probably due to Natural gas speculation and oil. 1st round is already ordered and price locked. On subsequent apps it will be, get what you paid for. N cost more they get less N. I won't take it in the rear.

    Already talked to my rep and their looking at only about $0.15 per bag increase, not too bad.
