Is it Time For a New Nitrogen Strategy?
Urea prices are setting new highs, reflecting global demand and higher shipping costs, and prices are expected to remain 20-25% higher than last season.
At $700 to $800/tonne and Nitrogen losses commonly exceeding 50%, a fertiliser strategy too focused on urea is unlikely to optimise crop performance.
