OMAHA (DTN) -- Retail fertilizer prices tracked by DTN for the second week of December continue to remain steady, as has been the case the past couple of months. Meanwhile, a long application season this fall has been a relief to fertilizer distributors worried about barge traffic on the Mississippi River.

Seven of the eight major fertilizers were lower compared to this past month, but these moves to the low side were fairly small, the DTN survey found. DAP had average price of $639 per ton, MAP $676/ton, potash $613/ton, urea $575/ton, 10-34-0 $602/ton, UAN28 $369/ton and UAN32 $418/ton.
