New CRU fertilizer price and crop price indices

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.
