    Oh shucks! I was thinking prices had come way down--until I looked at the dates of the posts. Ancient history.

    Some of you guys that go through a large amount will see prices near $13/bag for whatever pre-emergent you're looking for, maybe even less depending on where you are, where you buy it, and timing. Fert prices have been down again for awhile, and both Dow and Syngenta have recently dropped pricing on the Dimension and Barricade tech material used to make your favorite combo product.

    YO, You're not going to get RCreech pricing. He buys tractor trailer loads, he buys wayyyyy early, he also is very close to the manufacturing plants.

    I buy trailer loads and pay more than he does just based on shipping to get it to me.

    You buying 2 pallets is not a ton of buying power. Although the prices you quoted do seem high, look around locally, JDL is not the only game in town.

    It also sounds like you need to do some research and learn a bit more about products and applications and not just focus on how to get a bag of fert cheaper

    Ditto, RC knows his stuff. Our best prices the past year or 2 come from CPS & Zimco. They both use several suppliers, but most of the time it's made in Eau Claire, WI by EC Grow.
