Uncertainty about the applicability of certain fertilizer (mixtures) in the spring of 2020 has brought the market to a standstill. The new fertilizer ordinance, which will mainly use urea and phosphates, is unsettling both trade and agriculture. While it has long been speculated that "normal" urea will still be used in blends, the BMLE thwarted the whole thing - even urea in fertilizer...

Expert Opinion: 

Due to political (eg Iran sanctions) and global (eg credit losses in emerging markets) risks, splitting the purchase of fertilizers is urgently recommended. Some of the markets can no longer be explained rationally and the classic supply-demand model is thereby undermined.
