I'd like to get a set fertilizer program so I can send out bids sheets and buy big orders 2-3 times a year.

For those who do this do you ask for price per bag or say you need 3 pallets and do the math?

What are the most common and favorite anylasis of fertilizer for fescue, bermuda, and centipede(I'm luck to have all 3!!). I like to apply 1 lb of N on fescue and bermuda 3 times a year and .5 lbs N on centipede 3 times a year.

I've used anything from 8-8-24(end of year), 16-4-8, 30-0-6, 22-8-16, 18-24-12(starter), and on and on. I'm not sure what type of N is best on different turf types and I like a good slow release. Micros on my centipede and 1 app on everything else.
We buy from Agrium up here this year, blows JDL away, you might be able to get a good deal ordering round 1 and round 2 and 3 if you can store it, maybe get terms, that way they are comming out with one delivery with a lot of product. just a thought.
