Fertilizer is expected to be in high demand this spring, due to the wet fall limiting application in the Northern Plains. CHS Crop Nutrients Product Manager Todd Dysle says the following factors will impact supply and availability. “The production facility at Beulah, North Dakota has had some production issues. They’ve been willing to sell fewer tons to this point than normal,” explains Dysle. “Some of the tons that would be Pine Bend tons will be fed from the western and northern facilities. Most of those are rail-fed tanks. We’re down to tank car capacity and the ability to get rail cars in. The flooding has caused rail delays that will take more weeks to work out of.” Farmers may want to consider communicating with their suppliers with their needs.
