Prices for most of the eight major fertilizers are lower now than June. Potash is the exception. According to DTN Fertilizer Reporter Russ Quinn, potash is slightly more expensive at $885 per ton. “A good chunk of the world’s potash comes from Russia. A lot of analysts are worried about potash supplies increasing going into 2023, because of unstable footing.” Prices for all eight major fertilizers remain higher than this time last year. “MAP is the lowest at 44 percent more expensive than last year. Starter fertilizer is 45 percent higher, DAP is 49 percent higher, urea at 47 percent higher and potash is 77 percent more expensive. Anhydrous is 100 percent higher than one year ago.”
