    Do I read this correctly, 7 total fert applications? How many real visits and trips over the area?

    Me thinks the program is a little wacky and I'm assuming (dangerously) that these are someone elses specs.

    Be that as it may, you have the same equip I do. I'd add up the material and the hours to apply. I'd want to get at least $80 to $120 an hour for application time, including drive and load plus material cost.

    We round our acres down to 44m/sf. For an acre we would charge $132 for Fert. I would calculate your measurement to be 2.8 acres.

    Therefore:
    Fert= $370
    CGP= $492
    W/C= $492
    LIME= $162

    This is how I would breakdown your applications. Hope this helps.

    Ant - Too much N early and late, spacing too close together. Is this your spec? Umpteen trips over the site. If somebody has money to throw, send it up a couple of counties.
