  • Rick's Tips

    Urea pricing is tending higher at this time which should continue into spring.

    MAP is holding steady which, hopefully will hold through spring planting.

    10-34-0 is still able to be had just the pricing changes almost daily and supply come spring looks to be tight. Call for current pricing.
