Indiscriminate use of micronutrients is more likely. The Green Markets Weekly North America Fertilizer Price Index provides a snapshot of how North American fertilizer prices are trending over time.

The Index is constructed using the fertilizer benchmark prices of U.S. Gulf Coast Urea, U.S. Cornbelt Potash and NOLA Barge DAP. The index is value weighted based on the annual global demand of each.
