The Association of American Plant Food Control Officials, The Fertilizer Institute, and USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) QuickStats are the primary data sources for national statistics.

Note that the NASS survey used to support table 7 (Average U.S. farm prices of selected. Natural gas prices and N fertilizer prices were intricately connected because natural gas is a major ingredient of the Haber-Bosch process in the synthesis of anhydrous ammonia.

Ab cubic feet of natural gas is required to produce one ton of anhydrous ammonia. Low fertilizer prices for now. Phosphate: Wholesale phosphate prices are nearly 19% lower than last planting season though retail costs are slightly higher, reflecting sourcing issues due to China’s lockdown early in the year.

But the price difference likely matters little – Author: Jacqueline Holland. As corn prices remain high, U.S. corn growers are expected to plant million acres of corn inrepresenting the largest planting since 1 This large planting is likely to translate into another year of high fertilizer prices.

However, other factors such as changing input prices often have an impact on fertilizer prices. As has been the trend in recent weeks, no fertilizer price moved significantly in either direction. Five fertilizers were higher compared to last month. Factors affecting the use of fertilizers and manure by smallholders: The case of Vihiga, western Kenya Article (PDF Available) in Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems 78(3) July with.

The average percentage of yield attributable to fertilizer generally ranged from about 40 to 60% in the USA and England and tended to be much higher in the tropics. ERS evaluates the influence of rising energy costs and crop prices on fertilizer prices, nutrient supply, and consumption.

ERS research also examines factors influencing volatile fertilizer markets and farmers' strategies to manage nutrient use under price uncertainty.

ERS evaluates factors driving trends in the use and composition of pesticides in the United States. Factors Influencing Fertilizer Demand The benefit from fertilizer/nutrient application in monetary terms should be high enough to motivate farmers to use fertilizer. Crop response trials should provide the necessary data on benefit-cost ratios and these can be made known to.

Retail fertilizer prices dipped lower in the fourth week of Mayaccording to prices for eight major fertilizers tracked by DTN. While no fertilizer has moved a significant amount, [ ] DTN Fertilizer Trends: Making Economical Decisions The cost of a fertilizer is related to its plant nutrient content.

If a nitrogen fertilizer such as is being purchased, the cost should be about three-quarters that of When buying fertilizer, one should compare prices on the basis of cost per pound of "actual" nutrient, not the price per tonne of fertilizer material.

Example 1. International Fertilizer Industry Association. Fertilizers are plant nutrients, required for crops to grow • Crops need energy (light) CO 2, water and minerals to grow • The carbon in crops originates from CO 2 absorbed through the leaves • Crops absorb water and plant nutrients from the soil • Plant nutrients are building blocks of crop material.

Without nutrients the crops can not grow. Identify, view, monitor and decide your next fertilizer strategy. In today’s challenging times, when demand for fertilizers is growing at a slower rate than supply, fertilizer and chemical companies need to remain competitive and adopt a strategy of price excellence in order to emerge strong and stable.

It might be useful to professionals in crop and soil science, or ag teachers, that want to bone up on plant nutrition and soil fertility.

It provides information on the role each nutrient plays in the plant, deficiency symptoms, factors that will affect availability and uptake, and fertilizer sources of the s: 7.

positive influence on use of fertilizer in maize production. Similarly, Fakoya and Mato () conduct a study that examines the factors affecting the use of inorganic fertilisers in Zinder state of Niger republic.

The study reveals that poor fertiliser distribution. Gary Schnitkey • crop economics • August and September fertilizer prices confirm expectations of rising fertilizer costs for So far, anhydrous ammonia prices are close to $80 per ton higher for production as compared to production.

DAP prices are close to $70 per ton higher and potash prices are near $35 per ton higher. For example, a few years ago, fertilizer raw material prices skyrocketed due to a number of converging factors: Emerging markets like China and India bought up large blocks of existing stocks of fertilizer raw materials needed to support their growth.

Agricultural demand for fertilizer also peaked due to an expansion in biofuel initiatives. CRU's Prices service for fertilizers updates key price assessments every Thursday, covering urea, nitrates, ammonia, phosphates, potash, sulphur and sulphuric acid in one offering.

In addition to internationally traded fertilizer prices, we provide extensive US inland fertilizer prices and coverage of Chinese inland prices. Consider These Fertilizer Factors by Farm Journal Editors Cost is a significant factor, especially since fertilizer prices have continued to increase during the past few years.

Price and. Fertilizer Price Calculator by Chris Barron on Sun, 08/14/ - Fertilizers Price Index is at a current level ofdown from last month and down from one year ago.

This is a change of % from last month and % from one year ago. Soils are one of the world's most important resources, and their protection, maintenance, and improvement is critical to the continuance of life on earth.

Soil Fertility, Second Edition, offers thorough coverage of the fertility, composition, properties, and management of soils. This book carries on the tradition of excellence established by authors Henry Foth and Boyd Ellis, leading soil.

Prices of Raw Materials are Also Volatile The prices of raw material inputs contribute to the volatility in fertilizer prices. It takes approximat cubic feet of natural gas to produce one ton of anhydrous ammonia ().

The cost of natural gas can account for up to 90 percent of the cost of manufacturing anhydrous ammonia. Anhydrous. The majority of commercial fertilizer N products is manufactured from anhydrous ammonia, NH 3, which is produced from reacting N 2 (nitrogen from the air) and H 2 (hydrogen from natural gas) under high pressure and temperature.

Sincethe cost of natural gas and other energy sources has increased substantially ().There are two primary reasons for the recent increases in energy prices. Type of fertilizer: Fertilizers are salts, and these salts can affect the ability of the seedling to absorb water too much fertilizer (salt) and seedling desiccation or “burn” can occur.

Some fertilizer materials have a higher salt index or burn potential than others. The DAP fertilizer average price was around $ per ton whereas the MAP fertilizers cost around $ per ton. Phosphorus and potassium can cost farmers between $ to $ a ton.

The high prices have forced many people to think of manure as the alternative nutrient supplier to plants. Movements in input price can impact fertilizer prices—and therefore demand too. As you can see, analyzing the factors that affect expense and revenue can be confusing.

Because of the various resources needed to produce it and the enormous scope of distribution around the world, fertilizer is closely tied with many other industries. Its cost then can be affected by several economic factors, including supply and demand, responses to commodity prices and global supply.

These factors are: Commodity Prices The prices for corn, wheat, soybeans and other crops are. Note - P 2 O 5 is 44% phosphorus. By convention, the amount (or analysis grade) of phosphorus in fertilizers is expressed in this oxide form.

Additionally, The Association of American Plant Food Control officials have developed a uniform state fertilizer bill which says that available P 2 O 5 must be guaranteed by the manufacturer and so the guaranteed analysis of phosphorus must be expressed.One of the key swing factors is agricultural commodity prices.

It looks increasingly likely that the Southern Hemisphere will harvest another big crop this year, and if the Northern Hemisphere produces a big crop later this year, agricultural commodity prices could take a step down and jeopardize P&K demand, particularly during the last half of.FERTILIZER PRICE COMMENTS FOR OCTOBER NITROGEN.

While the market remains positive overall, the price of urea peaked in October in most areas. Producers achieved higher netbacks from government tenders east of Suez and tried to exploit the tighter market in southeast Asia, but elsewhere there was increased reluctance to pay higher prices.
