UK fertiliser price series to help increase market transparency

It is hoped the insight into fertiliser markets will increase transparency

A new monthly series of UK fertiliser prices from AHDB is hoped will help increase transparency in the market.
The monthly price information will cover the most commonly used products: ammonium nitrate (UK produced and imported), liquid nitrogen (UAN), potash and phosphates.
The industry has been without a regular fertiliser price overview such as this since January 2017 following the retirement of Robert Bojduniak who supplied fertiliser prices through Farm Brief.
A pilot study means that AHDB will now be collecting, validating and publishing historical fertiliser price data on a monthly basis.
The development of this UK fertiliser price series has been supported by the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC).
Joanne Tuck, AHDB Head of Data and Analysis, said: “We hope this insight into fertiliser markets will increase transparency and help levy payers manage their input costs, together with business tools like Farmbench and benchmarking.”
Any businesses in the farm supply chain interested in contributing should contact MI@ahdb.org.uk
