Fertilizer prices are at all-time highs. Despite the sticker shock, CHS Ag Services Sales Manager Andrew Schultz says a lot of fertilizer was applied this fall. “We had a record fall this year in terms of the amount of tons applied,” said Schultz. “Most of those who typically do stuff in the fall committed in the late July/early August timeframe.” A large percentage of the fertilizer has been booked already. “You had urea at $525 (per ton) and all the way up to $900; we locked in a lot more urea at the bottom side of that than at the top side.”
