Price fluctuations have continued to buffet the market, as levels fell following the recent record-setting, before strong buying from the Indian subcontinent, rising raw material prices and improved affordability have lifted prices once again.

Our prices cover finished fertilizers DAP, MAP, TSP and SSP, as well as raw materials phosphate rock and phosphoric acid, with assessments also spanning feed products MCP and DCP.
