OMAHA (DTN) -- Retail fertilizer prices hit a breaking point this week. For the first time in over eight months, some retail prices moved significantly to the low side, according to DTN's survey for the third week of July 2013.

As has been the case for the last few weeks, all eight of the major fertilizers were lower compared to last month.

Leading the charge were anhydrous and UAN32. Anhydrous slipped 7% compared to third week of June and had an average price of $758/ton. UAN32 was down 5% compared to last month and had an average price of $424/ton.
