    I'm looking at a 13-0-0 w/dimension for 13.80. Got some decent pricing on some other things. Ammonia sulfate at 440.00/ton.

    I'm a little concerned with the short duration of dimension and have never used it. I like prodiamine but the budget likes 13.80 a bag. I would definitely have to spray dimension on the more prone areas I guess on the second app.

    Since most fertilizers are made by reactions at high temps and the price of natural gas hitting bottom I want to see more realistic fert prices.

    Good thing I have an end around plan and won't be a big part of that demand this year. There is more than one way to skin a cat! When they zig....I zag!

    I am running 15-0-0 with .10 Dimension at about $15/bag. Plan to split app it since the season is more than a month longer than typical.
