Do you want quick release or slow release N-P-K. It may help you to work as a tech for someone for a short time to gain some experiance. I am not trying to slam you, its just that I've noticed a lot of your posts. We can tell you what to do on this site but that doesn't mean you can deliver it in the field. I worked for over three years for someone before I went out on my own. I still had a lot of questions. Hope this helps.

I don't apply that, so my prices are irrelevant.

Full service......

I don't always use just granular, I can also get 55 gal drums of 50% slow release liquid fert and it costs out to $10 an acre.

Why I don't use it often? More chances of disease, stress.

I used to use Miracle Grow 14-14-14, and also have used 46-0-0 urea. To quick to much growth, to uncontrollable.

Live and learn.

Granular stores easy, no mixing, no big tanks, no long hoses, no mess, no spills.

mr.lawnzap, I agree with grazerZ, you left a lot out!!!!!!!!!

why don't you post what products you use, and some info about, like size, blend , sulphate of potash, ect, and maybe people who use similiar products could help you better.
