“Fall is a great time to put your P and K needs down in the fields so it spreads your workload out between fall and spring,” said Ryan Gerth, manager at Federated’s Ogilvie location.

Plus, this fall’s fertilizer prices “might well be the lowest they will be until well in 2022,” he said.

Fertilizer prices have been increasing throughout 2021 and a variety of products have been in short supply. In these unpredictable times, Gerth noted, it’s challenging to accurately know when product will arrive, especially with the disruptions caused by hurricanes in the south. The flow of fertilizer up and down the [Mississippi] river is inconsistent. 

“At this point, some products are not available for purchase, and we are not sure when they will be,” said Gerth. However, Federated is “doing our best to see to it we have tons in place at our plants for our valued customer’s fall needs –  and also heading into the spring.”
