I should probably have made myself clearer.I can well understand Cork and BB etc wanting to safeguard their clients interests, and of course they should.
But why the cartel? Why the exclusivity?
At the click of a mouse you can get an instant price on wheat etc.
The shadowy almost murky world of the fertilizer trade is as simple and straightforward as the wheat trade. Open it up!
Methinks that it’s just too lucrative as it is.
My last offer was last Wednesday. It was for 15-15-15+11 at €299 for February delivery and payment in 30days after delivery. Thats for 600kg Toplift big bag.
That’s as simple and transparent as it gets. I can buy at that price..or not.
There shouldn’t be a jot of difference between fertilizer imported into France or Ireland. It’s all coming from the same source.
I’m not trying to protect any cartel, if that were the case then I wouldn’t be interested in quoting prices.
I’m more interested in those who go to the effort of being active posters on the site actually benefiting from the site rather than the many “lurkers” who just use the site for their own benefit.
