I agree with you 100%... there is no question that by sheer volume alone you would be turning money all the time... its called the "Demand Side" of a business... getting a bigger bang for your buck is popular and creates Demand...

The inexpensive nature of the products supplied constitutes a discount in a large supply and availability which favors the synfert market on the "Supply Side" as well...

But that is not what I was talking about as an LCO... My least expensive lawns as far as charging clients, are also among the best of my lawns and most durable... they are 'mostly' organic but I'm still working on the color that synferts bring to the grass...

I can make more money doing unnecessary and counter-productive apps as "The Big Boys" do, but I prefer making higher wages for fewer and highly productive apps...
That is my economy of not matching product for product and pound of N for pound of N...

So in one sense we totally agree and in another sense you're equating synfert to orgfert... and I reject that idea as a non-starter....
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
