OMAHA (DTN) -- Retail fertilizer prices are continuing their six-month slide, according to DTN's national retailer survey for the third week of October.

All eight of the major fertilizers averaged lower prices compared to last month, although all decreases were fairly insignificant, as all were only between 1% and 3% lower.

DAP and potash each dropped about 3% in the past month, while MAP, urea, 10-34-0 and UAN28 all were only about 2% lower. Also, anhydrous and UAN32 fell about 1% each.

With prices still slipping, growers are hesitating to make 2014 purchases, farmers and retailers tell DTN.
