Fertiliser prices continue to fall as the main season comes to a close, with CAN down to €220/t in some areas.

The latest IFA fertiliser price survey shows that the keenest quotes for CAN are in the northern half of the country, with bagged prices at €220/t delivered. However, in the southern half of the country, best available prices are €10/t higher at €230/t.

German wholesale CAN prices have eased back to €170/t but only part of the price drop has been passed back to farmers, according to IFA inputs team leader Chris Hayes.

Potential

"There is potential for CAN prices to fall by a further €10/t," he insisted.

Quotes for Pasture Sward (27-2.5-5), Cut Sward (24-2.5-10) and 18-6-12 have also eased.

The lowest quote for 27-2.5-5 is €295/t, with 24-2.5-10 available at €300/t and 18-6-12 selling for €295/t.
