Over the last few weeks fertiliser markets have continued to rise with N P and K prices firming. Stocks are very low and demand is still outstripping supply. The increase in gas prices has increased the cost of nitrogen production significantly.
In more positive news, grassland farmers are seeing a much needed flurry of good late growth as conditions have improved and earlier applied fertiliser kicks in. The current conditions are also ideal for fertiliser application on autumn sown crops to replace nutrients taken up by the previous crops, and to get the new crop off to the best possible start.
It’s worth considering soil sampling to understand deficits in your soil and establish your individual requirements. For more information on soil sampling please contact your Wynnstay Representative or call our Fertiliser Office on 01939 211266.
