    all fert programs must be prepaid. they pay for the whole program up front. no discount. on the full service packages, we give a 5 % discount, and the first payment is due no later than march 1st(we dont do any work till mid march)

    Early spring I'll give a pre-pay discount just to stimulate my cashflow. If they prepay for 10 cuts, I'll throw in a free cut.
