Fertiliser Update - January 2020
By Dave Mitchell, Fertiliser Manager 23 days ago

We witnessed world prices for fertilisers fall towards the end of 2019, this has been helped further with a strengthening of the pound sterling. Manufacturers have now reset UK prices and are considerably cheaper than they were at the same time last year.

With the now improving weather that we are finally beginning to see, this may be a good time to look at purchasing fertiliser to make sure product is available for the first application when required. With the lack of forward buying, the pressure on supply logistics will be even greater than normal.

February 2019 was an exceptionally warm month and enabled farmers to get a head start with on-farm applications. Orders which hadn’t been placed early enough faced lengthy delays of at least 4 weeks or receiving their orders as haulage and manufacturers struggled to keep up with demand.
