OMAHA (DTN) -- Retail fertilizer prices tracked by DTN for the first week of November show the continued trend of higher prices.

Anhydrous prices increased 6%, the most significant price move this week. The nitrogen fertilizer had an average price of $517/ton, up $29 per ton from the same time last month. It's $108/ton higher than last year.

The seven remaining fertilizers were also higher, although less significantly.

Urea prices increased $14/ton from last month to $407/ton.

Both UAN28 and UAN32 prices gained $7/ton to $245/ton and $287/ton respectively.

The prices of MAP and 10-34-0 each rose $6/ton. MAP was $529/ton, while 10-34-0 was $458/ton.

At $506/ton, DAP prices increased $5/ton.

Retail potash prices, up $3/ton from last month, were $368/ton.

On a price per pound of nitrogen basis, the average urea price was at $0.44/lb.N, anhydrous $0.32/lb.N, UAN28 $0.44/lb.N and UAN32 $0.45/lb.N.

All eight of the major fertilizers are now higher compared to last year with prices showing significant gains in recent months. UAN32 is 6% higher; potash is 8% more expensive; both 10-34-0 and UAN28 are 14% higher; MAP is 15% more expensive; DAP is 17% higher; urea is 20% more expensive and anhydrous is now 27% higher compared to last year.
