Supplier says year-end fertilizer orders are steady
A fertilizer retailer says he’s had a steady stream of year-end purchases. Grant Wandrey is the location manager for GROWMARK in Amherst Junction and Wautoma, Wisconsin. He tells Brownfield, “We’re busy in our prepaid season, yup. This is a busy time of year for that with farmers trying to spend money right before the end of the year before the tax man gets it.”
Wandrey says fertilizer orders seem to be up compared to last year, when prices were higher. He says much of his time now is spent on lining up products and overseeing the Amherst Junction facility expansion, which is scheduled to start receiving products February 15th.
