    last yr. after i received my delivery of fert. i noticed that there were bags with holes that were taped up... the tape said sampled by the n.j. dept. of agriculture .. no bid deal...
    well yesterday i received a note from the state that the fertilizer that was sampled was found to be deficient in one of more of it's primary plant nutrients:nono: :nono: :nono: .
    not a good thing imo
    the state fined the fert. company and also they are required to pay me an penalty also:blush:

    deficient in Nitrogen and APA by 3.96 and 2.61
    so the total N was off by almost 4% not good.

    you guys ever came across this?

    I believe our state dept of ag puts out a booklet every yr of all the times companies are off on the bag percentages. It was a lot thicker than I would have thought.
