Prices in Brazil fell to $820/t cfr, while demand from the rest of Latin America was minimal until March.

Urea prices fell following a broad correction at the start of the year because Indian not have demand in the coming months.

The FOB price from producers are below $850/t and almost all buyers are waiting further corrections due to large unsold cargo in January in Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria and the Middle East.
