    Im between $15 and $16/bag on some 14-0-4 .38 prodiamine. My price stayed the same as last year so I would say its a decent fert price.

    That's a good price. I paid 18.00 for 17-0-0 w/prodiamine last year. I had to change because of the weather this year and I am happy I also see a good price to go along with it. I think I am seeing some very juvenile crab in the garden where I had it last year. Just starting rd 1.

    That's great news! Just one app? 12.50 is a great price too!

    I haven't decided exactly on what will get the split app. I have some I took on the middle of last year that bloomed CG that will get splits. I'm thinking of doing some splits with prodiamine sprayed in critical risk area's to get about 2 months when I spray in May. Cheaper that way.

    Do you deal direct with an Andersons rep? I've bought some through my distributor.

    i get mine through the company i started off and got certified with, they receive anywhere from 4-8 pallets at a time

    they are a fairly decent size (450-500 fert customers)

    he deals directly with anderson and i put my order in to get dropped off at their yard

    it sounds like you are a good size company, so i figured you would be getting at least a couple pallets at a time and they would probably deliver that
