OMAHA (DTN) -- DTN has tracked retail fertilizer prices since the first week of November 2008. Eight major fertilizers (DAP, MAP, potash, urea, 10-34-0, anhydrous, UAN28 and UAN32) have been tracked every week since that time.

During this more than 14-year stretch of time, fertilizer prices have experienced quite a range of prices, as farmers know as they've made their purchases. Weather issues, geopolitical events and even a worldwide pandemic have had a great impact on the level of nutrients across the world.

So how high and low did fertilizer prices go?
