    Hello our company decided we would start doing fertilization. We need to know where to buy chemicals and such.

    Also what kind of sprayer to use? We want a tank to put on the back of either a 8 foot truck, or a 5x8 trailer.

    Please advise of some equipment manufacture's, since we are new to fert. app we want to purchase used equipment because we do not want to invest to much into it, because we will be new in doing the work.

    Here's a suggestion that you may not like, but I promise, it's a good one.
    Either hire someone who knows what they are doing, or you, or one of your partners go work for a fert/spray company for a yr. and learn the ropes. If you're just going to try and start applying, you will make some very costly mistakes.
    Also, make sure that you are properly licensed.

    Ranger, who was also at the real green seminar in Pitt, has some nice sprayers for sale. Thjey are listed in the parts marketplace. They are the gregson clark injection system. I seriously considered getting one of them but already have a few spray units.
