IFA’s Inputs Project Team Chairman John Coughlan has reported a reduction in the price of all fuel types surveyed in the most recent quarterly survey. The results show that the average cost of agricultural diesel is now 62 cent per litre, with farmers paying 117 cent per litre for car diesel and 57 cent per litre for kerosene.
IFA Inputs Project Team Chairman John Coughlan has warned farmers to shop around before purchasing fertiliser as wholesale CAN prices have fallen by over €30/t in recent weeks and this should be reflected in farm gate prices over the coming days.
