Fall/Spring Fertilizer Price Differences

Generally, fertilizer prices are lower in fall than in spring. Producers should take these price differences into consideration when planning their fertilizer program. Another factor to consider if purchasing in the fall is the interest and storage cost for carrying over to spring. Table 15 summarizes the provincial average price comparisons between fall and spring for the major phosphorus and nitrogen fertilizer products.
