DTN Tracking Retail Fertilizer Prices For 14 Years Shows Wide Range

DTN Tracking Retail Fertilizer Prices For 14 Years Shows Wide Range

By Russ Quinn

DTN has tracked retail fertilizer prices since the first week of November 2008. Eight major fertilizers (DAP, MAP, potash, urea, 10-34-0, anhydrous, UAN28 and UAN32) have been tracked every week since that time.

During this more than 14-year stretch of time, fertilizer prices have experienced quite a range of prices, as farmers know as they've made their purchases. Weather issues, geopolitical events and even a worldwide pandemic have had a great impact on the level of nutrients across the world.

So how high and low did fertilizer prices go?

Here are the all-time high and low prices for each of the eight major fertilizers from data that DTN has collected.

Low Price -- $353/ton (1st week of March 2009)

High Price -- $1,059/ton (3rd week of May 2022)

MAP:

Low Price -- $386/ton (1st week of November 2009)
