*A secondary analysis follows. These figures exclude statistical highs and lows...

With high/low figures excluded (HLEx), Inputs Monitor Regional Index Composite 0.84 lower week-over to 457.910 -- a 0.18% dip to the low.

Anhydrous falls $1.50 to $878.70; UAN28 higher $0.90 to $376.20; UAN32 $0.43 lower to $414.14; Urea drops $2.30 -- 0.40% lower to $562.30.

DAP $0,50 lower to $643.47 -- a 0.07% decline; MAP moves $0.70 lower to $657.10.

Potash drops another $3.00 to $584.20 -- a 0.51% decline.

Farm diesel dips $0.059 to $3.427 per gallon; LP upticks slightly -- adding two-and-a-half cents to $1.424.

Check your local pricing on LP. Now may be a good time to top off as a cold snap may push pricing higher. LP spent several weeks in decline to arrive where it is today. If these colder temps push prices higher in the short-run, it may take several weeks to return to these seasonal lows.

Differential between the two analyses (standard figures v. HLEx) stands at 0.104 -- a 0.022% margin with the HLEx analysis on top at 457.910.
