ESTIMATING THE CORRELATION BETWEEN FERTILIZER AND FUEL PRICES AND THE OPTIMAL NITROGEN USAGE IN COTTON PRODUCTION

Blake K. Bennett, Texas AgriLife Extension Service

Research has shown a correlation between fuel and fertilizer prices along with the costs associated with transporting the fertilizer and the value of the U.S. dollar. Recent volatile fuel prices would suggest that any correlation between fuel prices and fertilizer prices can result in volatile fertilizer prices impacting cotton production levels and profitability. This study estimates these interactions as well as explains the responsiveness of changes in fertilizer price and demand as well as cotton production due to changes in fuel prices.
