    Hey guys I'm doing a marketing project for school on a fert biz. I can't find any numbers about the growth or decline of the indusrty. I'm looking for suggestions. The project I'm going with is concentrating on a slow growth fert program targerted at residential clients. Im hoping thats realistic enough. Does anyone have any suggestions or marketing research they would like to share.

    I also called Trugreen in my local area. The guy said they grow about 10-12 percent a year and are at 20,000 clients here in St. Louis. Their customer turn over rate is 20% compared to 40% national average. Thought you guys might like to hear that number.
