143 an acre is a good price to me. Make sure its a reputable company. If its a national company you may want to think better of it depending on which one. Possibly get references to help you make a decision on more than just rice.

That price looks real good to me. I was charging more than that last year....

Thats half of what I charge. You get what you pay for. Your customers are gonna point the finger at you if the work is subpar.
