    thats great, the app license is a great one to have, once you relize how much business your losing to other fert companies its an easy choice.

    HUGE MONEY IN APPLICATIONS!!!! do you have experience?....applicating? I'm sure if you listen to the people on here you will get pleanty! just remember.....Always hit your last foot or wheel pass.....don't spray when winds get over 18mph.... you do not "need" a "sticker" in your w/c mix.... do not apply 46-0-0 when temps are over 80 deg, or w/c period if temps are over 90.... liquid can be so profitable, don't do it all year(micro-nutrients in granular and customers like "dry") go to lesco, 200 gal. space saver $3500, 80# spreader $350-$400 lesco three-way w/c. 10 quarts lesco 3-way per 200 gal. fert is up to you. spring and fall I use 46-0-0 and always use liquid pre-emergent!!!!! granular bounces off bare areas. barricade 4FL liquid pre-emergent half gallon per 200 gal. tank does OK. In my neck of the woods round one(fert,w/c and pre-m costs $1.35 per gallon an I apply 1 gallon per sq. ft.) do the math. base price is $32.00 sometimes usually $36.00 and $140.00 per acre residential, $100.00 per acre commercial.
