Re: Anyone Buying Fertilizer?

I have inquired prices down significantly from last year but not enough to be profitable at the low commodity prices. Have not pulled the trigger but probably will on 50% of my 2017 needs shortly after Jan1, gotta get something on the books. Good Luck!

Re: Anyone Buying Fertilizer?

I bought 28% back in September for December delivery. 161/Ton
Had potash spread on bean stubble that went into wheat in October. Just a hair under 400 if I remember correctly. But I'm in the east with a +.85 corn basis πŸ˜€

Re: Anyone Buying Fertilizer?

Chickens and turkeys are a big thing about an hour south of me sw. We have varied soils and a lot of rocks, but it pays pretty well to farm around here if you keep good records and know a little about what your land can do. Fuel is my biggest expense as I have to truck beans 2.5 hours and wheat about 3. Sleeping in the truck is my vacation away from the wife!

Is the "poop" in DC just too hot for the soil?   Smiley Happy

 

I also envy the location,  but I am sure there are a lot of issues involved in doing business in the "east coast" population.  That is a long way to go for an initial market...  We sometimes deliver it that far to get away from our market.

 

 

Good to read your thoughts again..
