OMAHA (DTN) -- According to retail fertilizer prices tracked by DTN for the third week of February 2013, prices continue fairly steady as has been the case for the last four months.

Five of the eight major fertilizers nudged lower compared to last month, but these moves were fairly small. DAP had average price of $623 per ton, MAP $665/ton, potash $594/ton, 10-34-0 $610/ton and anhydrous $861/ton.

The other three fertilizers edged higher compared to the third week of January, but again the move was insignificant. Urea had an average price of $575/ton, UAN28 $384/ton and UAN32 was at $438/ton.
