    I honestly can't remember, it could have been a co-op agronomist said it to me, that they couldn't put P in any of the compound mixes with protected.... But now I'm doubting myself.

    Some info here https://www.agriland.ie/farming-new...rotected-urea-farmers-find-your-answers-here/

    Apparently the phosphate is acidic and breaks down the coating.

    Is now a good time to buy fertiliser or is there a chance prices will drop substantially potential changes to anti dumping charges?
