Chemical lacks struck US farmers

(MENAFN) US farmers have restricted using common weed killers and altered their planting strategies over continuing lacks of agricultural chemicals, Reuters announced on Monday, quoting interviews with industry players.

Industry players said to the new agency that spraying smaller volumes of herbicides and changing to less-effective fungicides upsurge the danger of weeds and diseases crippling crop output at a time after worldwide grain deliveries are already difficult.

On the words of Shawn Inman, the owner of distributor Spinner Ag in Zionsville, Indiana “This is off the charts … Everything was delayed, delayed, delayed,” noting that deliveries are now the tightest in his 24-year job.

Costs for glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides increased over 50 percent against 2021, Inman declared, while the prices of glyphosate stood at USD50-60 a gallon, rising from at least USD20 per gallon in the middle of last year.
