Normally all Ammonia is applied in April and early May in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Southern Iowa. This year due to excessive moisture, application is delayed and everyone will want ammonia at the same time — and an acute shortage will result. Last year with more favorable conditions, over half the dealers in Iowa were out of Ammonia in June. There just are not enough tank cars to deliver the ammonia in rush season.
