Fall harvest may be the culmination of this year’s crop, but more and more farmers are thinking ahead to next year, namely in making early preparations and crop input purchase decisions. But there’s a lot of variability in those markets, and it’s important to identify where you can generate value in lower purchase prices now versus next spring. As of right now, anhydrous ammonia is a “fairly good deal” and looks to remain that way for same time, while phosphate prices have the potential to move higher based on current discounted prices. Crop protection also faces some upside potential in prices given the volatile China trade situation, while fuel looks to be more stable in terms of supply and prices through the next few months. Despite early-buying discounts, seed may be another area prudent to put off purchases until later on in the year or early next year. See the tips here. Do you agree?
