    I'm new to the business. Just wondering how you guys determine a price for a customer who wants organic fertilizer?

    For me, it's about double the cost of regular fert., mostly because of the higher cost of the organic and the lower amount of N available in organic vs. mineral/chemical/synthetic.

    Not to mention the amount of product to be put down.

    Someone here mentioned, if you own a Fork Lift and a Flat Bed 5 Ton truck your ready to apply organics.
