Anhydrous ammonia prices are currently around $850 per ton, with uncertainty about prices in the spring of 2013. A colder winter and more corn plantings likely will lead to higher prices and vice versa. Longer-term, nitrogen fertilizer production capabilities mayl be increased, leading to downward pressure on nitrogen prices. DAP is currently in the low $600 per ton ranges and potash is near $600 per ton. These ingredients have not varied in price much in recent months.
