    The Pest Post

    A change in the balance of oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen in the air can be as effective as fumigants when controlling pests in grain stored in bins.

  • Domestic potash prices continued to firm in October on limited supply and a generally bullish outlook amongst market participants. Barges traded as high as $285 to $290 per ton FOB New Orleans, Louisiana, (NOLA) at the end of the month, compared to $265 to $270 in late September.

    DTN Fertilizer Outlook

    Domestic wholesale prices for most fertilizers are expected to remain steady to firm in the short term as current forecasts point to generally favorable conditions for fall fertilizer applications.
