Market Status: Soft Week 47 2023 – Nitrogen Index registers steep decline and nears 2020 levels

Significant declines in nearly all major fob and cfr regions for urea, amsul and ammonia as well as international ammonium nitrate values led to a substantial 11.32 point decline in the PWNI to 150.22 points. Indeed, only the European nitrates and global UAN markets have shown price stability, although this has come at the expense of major illiquidity.

Over the last two weeks, the Index has declined a combined 12.25 points as it nears 2020 levels.
