Fertilizer prices continue to slide

IARN — It was less than a year ago that we were worried about how we were going to be able to afford to put fertilizer on the fields in the fall or this spring and grow a crop in 2023. How were we going to break even when some prices were topping over $1,500 per ton for fertilizers?  This past spring, prices had eased back, and it was a little easier to afford. Many farmers had also been able to lock in prices before they exploded last year.
