Rabobank believes that bearish commodity prices will have limited impact on input use in the short term, while the medium-term picture could see farmers reducing fertilizer applications as margins come under more pressure. Rabobank thinks logistical bottlenecks are likely to become the key driver for US fertilizer prices in the coming quarter.
