New CRU fertilizer price and crop price indices

In February this year, we launched the first set of Fertilizer Week indices, bringing together an index for N, P, K and S prices and crop prices. CRU has published fertilizer price and crop price indices for some years but these are now being shared more widely for the first time.

The CRU price indices are based on CRU’s price assessment expertise in the global fertilizer industry, coupled with a CRU view of the aggregate of crop prices. Prices are weighted by volume and presented on a nominal basis (not taking into account inflation).

CRU’s price assessment, published every week as part of the Fertilizer Week online service, is based on transactions and information received from market participants active in the fertilizer market. We cover a wide range of the market, including producers, consumers and traders. The crop price index is based on wheat, corn, soyabeans and rice

Indices are calculated based on weekly prices for each crop and each fertilizer product (see below) weighted by trade through the main price points. The overall fertilizer index and overall crop index are similarly trade-weighted.

Main price points:

 Urea Fob Black Sea Prilled
  Fob Baltic Sea Prilled
  Fob Middle East Prilled
  Fob Middle East Granular
  Fob NOLA granular
 DAP Fob Tampa / US Gulf
  Fob Baltic Sea
  Fob North Africa
 Potash (KCL) CFR China ex-FSU std
  CFR India std (180 days)
  CFR Brazil granular (180 days)
  CFR Southeast Asia standard
 Wheat SM Wheat Fob Black Sea
