Flexi N

A nitrogen risk management tool

Nitrogen is the key driver for crop yield and quality but its price is heavily influenced by market volatility, which can make it hard to manage costs. Flexi N is a risk management tool designed by Frontier to protect buyers from the highest costs in the season through offering a stable market averaged price from May to March for those who commit. 






The benefits of Flexi N

  • Take advantage of Frontier’s buying power to lower your costs
  • Delayed payment for fertiliser when committed and delivered as per Frontier’s terms
  • Guaranteed market averaged price for applicable products
  • Proven quality, industry-leading products.


Nitrogen price volatility is influenced by many market factors, including climate issues, supply and demand rates, politics, oil/gas prices, currencies and production pace. Any one of these could cause an unexpected rise in fertiliser values during the season, which could impact growers looking to buy.

However, at Frontier, our significant buying power allows us to purchase nitrogen through the course of the season regardless of market volatility. For our customers committed to Flexi N, the benefit is that we can offer nitrogen products at a market averaged price from May through to March. This protects members from unexpected or significant price rises when buying fertiliser and means nitrogen costs can be spread out through the year.
