in reality though, any decent quantity of one ap ordered would result in nearer the $35 per bag cost i think, still a shock i admit, but it has to be figured in over the cost of a year for fert and labor to see anything in savings, not to mention and forget the better growth pattern you will get which matters a huge amount to someone like me who is full maint and has to mow after my own fert. of course, the more fert apps you do, the better savings etc there is to be had. we do a 6 fert app program on most places
I use Lesco Fertilizer. Currently using 25-30 tons a year. I apply at .75lbs of N Max unless it's a 4 app commercial then they get a good 1lb if irrigated. I pay about 15 dollars a bag for straight ferts. 28 dollars for Fert with Merit, and 16 a bag for Fert with Dimension.

It's a buck to a buck 15 per K average.
