Fertilizer Supplies Are Good WASHINGTON (AP) — Inventories of fertilizer are up from a year ago, meaning that farmers will have large supplies from which to order as they begin planning next spring's planting, according to industry surveys. The Fertilizer Institute said that, supplies of nitrogen as a group "are about the same as levels as in 1972" before the energy crunch and rising demand reduced them. "These buildups are occurring when all signs point to an excellent domestic demand so that the news is really not all bad," Edwin M. Wheeler, president of the industry group, said in a statement.
