OMAHA (DTN) -- As has been the case for more than four months now, retail fertilizer prices tracked by DTN for the second week of March 2013 continues to show steady prices.

Half of the eight major fertilizers edged higher compared to last month but these moves to the high side were fairly modest. 10-34-0 had average price of $612/ton, anhydrous $862/ton, UAN28 $395/ton and UAN32 $442/ton.

The other four fertilizers slipped compared to the second week of February but again the move lower was insignificant. DAP had an average price of $616/ton, MAP $664/ton, potash $590/ton and urea $575/ton.
