    I ordered my Fertilizer in January from Helena and they said delivery would be the second week in Feb. That came and went, then beginning of March, now they say they are still waiting for it to be made from Spring Valley and can not give me a date. Has anyone had any problems like this? I would just like to know I have my rd.1 product when the weather breaks (Thats why I ordered in January). Is this due to Spring valley unable to supply a tall order due to shortages or what. I don't know what to think.

    I recieved my order from Helena about a week after I ordered it, although it was only 1.5 tons and some chemicals.

    My dealer said Spring Valley was behind schedule because of all the salt they had to bag up. However, he said everything would be here by the time I needed it. He also has a partial supply left over from last year--which I bought in December.

    I'm waiting on a 22 ton split load of Barricade and Dimension. "Booked" it in November with early March ship date. Starting to kind of get nervous. I like having the extra room in the shop, but I know when I need it, I'm going to really need it. My original plans (in January) was to start fert. Monday (17th), but with the temps and snow I'm at least a week off from that, so I"m still ok. I guess it's comforting to know I'm not alone.
