Illinois anhydrous fell $27.83 to $865.75/short ton -- $4.25 below the regional average.
South Dakota anhydrous fell $8.57 to $888.93. That figure is still $18 above regional pricing, but the week-over decline is worth noting.
Wisconsin DAP moved $13.76 lower week-over to $602.24 -- well below the regional average of $634.06.
Missouri DAP also fell, dropping $11.13 to $624.37 -- $9.69 below the regional average.
Illinois MAP fell nearly as strongly as anhydrous in that state, shucking $24.07 to $632.50/st -- $20 below regional.
South Dakota potash scores here as well moving a robust $23.64 lower week-over to $585.44 -- again, still above the regional average, but only by $4.65.
