Where to buy chemicals

I was just wondering if there was anywhere other than LESCO to get my
chemicals. It was not just fertilizer they went up on. They went up on just about everything. I am from the DFW area.

Thanks For The Help

You might wanna check with your rep because seed and chemicals didn't go up, at our local store they actually came down alittle this year.

X-treme,

There is a company called Estes. I buy some of my chemicals through them. There are only a couple branches within a couple hours of me but I believe there are several branches in your area. Lesco did go up on just about everything here. Some things about $1 other things over $20. Hope this helps.

Estes is a good company to do business with. Also call United Agri Products in Irving.

You had me scared so I just called my Lesco man. I still have a couple ton of grass seed to buy and a 55 gal of Three Way and neither has gone up!

I went in the other day and MOP 0-0-62 up $0.41, 3-way up $2, simazine up $20. You may use simazine on your corn but I doubt you use it on your lawns being that they are Fescue and Bluegrass, so your OK...Don't Panic!

Does anyone know if Estes sells fertilizer? I wend to their web site and it list a lot of chemicals but no fertilizer was listed.
I also found out today that Revolver 1 qt went from $177 two weeks ago to $215 today. I'm not sure but i don't think Revolver going up has anything to do with oil prices. Thanks for all the help.

I believe they do sell granulars. You'd have to check with them to be sure though. I had a ton of UFLEXX delivered to my local co-op from them. Technically, it is a granular. However it is a stabilized nitrogen 46-0-0 I will be tank mixing.
