    Because of the recent spike in fertilizer costs I am thinking of getting into spraying. I have never done any fertilizer spraying so any help would be great. I would also like to see some pics. of your rigs because I will probably end up building my own.

    First of all I am curious on how you think that liquids are going to be any cheaper than granular. Also, being your from texas, it isn't a good idea to use liquid ferts in the summer with droughts. I don't know about you guys in Texas, admitedly I am generalizing, but here in GA we are short on rain. Liquids work too fast. Granular has a slow release coating most of the time.

    Just asking about a 2 inch transfer pumps shows how much you don't know about spraying. No that pump will rust slap up in a short period of time if exposed to chemicals. At 200 GPM you better be running 100 MPH when spraying. But thanks for laugh.
