    Im curious to see who all you guys buy your fertilizer through. Im getting my first app of crabgrass preventer for $22 per 50lb bag. This is The Andersons fert. Is there anywhere a guy could find good fert cheaper? Im a 2 pallet type applicator.

    I recently started using Ewing the irrigation company. They are starting to get into this more and I have great service out of them.

    Buy a boat if you want cheap. They have some great gas wells in Siberia. So they build gas-to-urea plants next to them and make tons of urea per minute, Try Green was plannning to do it years ago--I don't know how the plan worked out. The Russkies were supposed to auger the urea into the hold of the ship.
    Cut out the middle man...go to the source.

    It runs about $115 per metric ton.
