    you also need to pay $15 to register each of your employees every year. Seems like another way to pay someone some money.

    test $75
    bus lis $50
    my lis each year $100
    all employees $300

    Just another $500 a year to dish out

    On the test--were you expected to know all the formulas for the calculations or were they pretty much there for you to use--ie: oz/gal -- gal/acre etc.

    You need to know those. Probably only 4 or so math problems on there. The review sessions covered everything on there.

    I have not been before. I just looked it up. Thanks for the heads up, aaronmg. Looks like one day of fertilizer, one day of pesticide. $110 until January. I plan to sign up and figure there is some info there that could increase the bottom line by over $110. Has anybody been to this in the past? Worthwhile?
