Pass 'em the Vaseline & touch your toes.
A lot of the land farmed is rented. It's tough to pull a quarter or two out for many guys. If you own your ground and aren't saddled with too much debt then a fallow or green manure on a field or two wouldn't hurt with respect to the current situation. I have my canola blend at home so it's taken care of but my cereal fertilizer is unpriced. Yuk! Last time it was bad like now I cut back a bit on fertilizer and still got decent crops. This year I am under seeding some clovers on a third of my land. I realize straight grain guys aren't apt to do this but I figure I'm not going to get bent over by these asshats. What I fear is they are trying to squeeze as much as they can by creating artificial shortages before everyone realizes the world is swimming in urea. They know as we get closer to seeding we are more desperate to secure supply.I remember reading somewhere way back in the 90's when prices were really depressed because of oversupply, that if every farmer summer fallowed their headlands it would be enough to shift the supply balance back in our favour and get prices up.
I also think logistics could be a real problem if we all bought in the spring for just in time delivery, especially with road restrictions on.Notice how we're being trained, or maybe manipulated is a better word, into buying our fertilizer 6 to 10 months in advance in order to "get the good price"-no risk of financing and less risk of oversupply, plus they get to use our money for free. Then the onus and associated costs for storing and handling the product is being shifted to us the farmer because if we don't "the product is going to be in short supply" or "there will be transportation bottlenecks." And if you don't play along and just simply try to buy the product as needed you are going to get your butt nailed to the wall.
Be a nightmare waiting in line at the plant during seeding. A lot more convenient to have it at home anyway. Seed and fertilizer bins all at the same place no hassles. Times I would get the dealer to deliver field loads, heck he would fill my aircart. But they're limited to 10 tonnes.I also think logistics could be a real problem if we all bought in the spring for just in time delivery, especially with road restrictions on.
sent it twice, not sure why it didn't go. Anyway, I was just curious where you got those quotes you mentioned along the SK/MB border. I need a little more coverage going into spring.mac you might want to try again. I didn't get your PM
