4450. Yes input prices have always went up when grain prices have. But never this fast and this much
Nh3 double in a few months
Roundup 4 times in 3 months
Fuel will.soon be doubled
And rest assured they won't go down quickly when grain prices do.[/QUOTe
Well my memory isn't good enough to remember how much or how fast things went up several years ago when the bean price (what I mainly grow) shot up.
I do remember how things didn't go right back down after the prices decreased and wondered whether that big jump in crop prices really benefited us in the long run. That's why I'm not surprised now at what's happening and only wondering the same thing as back then. In the long run, did we really benefit from this current run up?
