MAP Fertilizer Price Index Ties All-Time Record

By Russ Quinn, DTN Staff Reporter

OMAHA (DTN) — Retail fertilizer prices continued to be slightly higher again the third week of April 2022, according to sellers surveyed by DTN.

The prices of two fertilizers were higher by a significant amount compared to last month, which DTN designates as 5% or more.

The average retail price of MAP was up 6% compared to last month. The phosphorus fertilizer had an average price of $1,079/ton. This ties the all-time-high price for MAP in our DTN data set. The previous time this level was achieved was the first week of November 2008.

The other fertilizer up considerably in price was UAN32, which was 5% more expensive compared to last month. The liquid nitrogen’s average price was $730/ton (all-time high price).

The remaining six fertilizers were slightly higher looking back to last month. DAP had an average price of $1,050/ton (all-time high), potash $879/ton, urea $1,012/ton (all-time high), 10-34-0 $906/ton, anhydrous $1,534/ton (all-time high) and UAN28 $631/ton (all-time high).
