The average retail price of DAP and MAP fertilizers inched higher this week, while the rest of the complex saw continued declines, according to prices tracked by DTN for the last week of July 2020.
DAP prices increased by an average of $4 to $410 per ton. MAP showed a smaller increase of $2, putting the average retail price at $429/ton. Neither price move is significant, which DTN considers 5% or more.
Of the six remaining major fertilizers, the prices of UAN28 and UAN32 each declined by $10/ton, or 4%. On average, UAN28 cost $223/ton, while UAN32 cost $262/ton.
Price moves for the remaining fertilizers were even smaller. Potash, at $358/ton, and 10-34-0, at $465/ton, declined by $3. The average urea price dropped by $2 to $355/ton, while anhydrous declined $7 to $454/ton.
On a price per pound of nitrogen basis, the average urea and anhydrous price were unchanged from last month at $0.39/lb.N and $0.28/lb.N. UAN28 at $0.40/lb.N and UAN32 at $0.41/lb.N are 1 cent higher than the last week of June 2020.
