An updated survey of fertilizer retailers shows prices for urea, MAP and anhydrous were all up at least five percent in the weeks leading up to the third week of this month. Though it’s partially a function of the volatility of the fertilizer marketplace in recent months, it could be the new trend as farmers look to secure inputs for what they expect to be a mammoth 2021 corn and soybean crop.
