Herbicide Shortage - Fact or Fiction?

Don't panic - plan ahead.

We are living in some unprecedented times regarding supply and demand. As many of you know, there has been a considerable amount of press about glyphosate and other CPP product shortages for the 2022 growing season. There are several different factors for the herbicide shortage including a decline in the number of laborers to unload tanker ships at gulf ports, lack of truck transportation from the ports to get the ingredients to U.S. formulation plants and formulated products to the retailers, reduced supplies of some of the inert ingredients of the formulation, shortages of materials to make containers and packaging, and Hurricane Ida that damaged a glyphosate production plant in Luling, LA. 

The last several months have not gone without time and effort by the Premier Cooperative staff actively working on getting ahead of these supply challenges. Working closely and often with vendors and manufacturing companies, I feel we are in a good position to meet your needs for the 2022 growing season. That doesn’t mean we won’t have challenges. It’s extremely important for you to take the time now to work with your Premier Agronomist to reduce rates and possibly improve your cost per acre with an alternative herbicide program. There are options and we look forward to providing you with best-of-class recommendations. Give your Premier Agronomist a call to get the planning and profits for 2022 in motion.
