Senate commissions another fertilizer report from Texas A&M

The Senate Ag Committee has asked Texas A&M economists to give a detailed report on the rise of fertilizer prices.

It is likely to show costs have gone up as much as 30 percent since the last study, released in January. That report showed costs had done up nearly $700 dollars a ton since late 2020.

USDA is investigating market manipulation as a potential reason. It will soon publish a notice for a public comment period.
