Farmers in the Northern Plains are still locking in fertilizer needs as prices rise. At Badger, Minnesota, CHS Ag Services location manager Jim Rinde says farmers had one of their better falls getting fertilizer applied, but there is still quite a bit that needs to be done this spring. “We have a lot of urea that needs to go into the ground.” Rinde says fertilizer prices have been climbing $10-to-$20 dollars per ton every week. “For urea, we were talking about mid-$300s early on, and now we’re in the $500 range. That’s quite an increase.”
