    We are still back and fourth with our dealer about doing either a duel tank or duel trigger setup. Anybody running a duel trigger? Issues?

    With duel tanks, are you successfully able to run both tanks at once through the gun or is it more like spray your fert, shut off/on valve and spray your weed control?

    Thanks.

    How come you want to spray fert, doesn't granular last longer and release slower?

    Also, did you have to hire a commercial applicator to apply for the pesticide business license? I was looking into getting licensed for spraying but there's so much regulation: In order to apply for the pesticide business license, a commercial applicator has to be employed by the company. In order to be a commercial applicator, you have to be a registered technician for at least a year. In order be apply to be a registered technician, you have to take a test at the DMV and work under a commercial applicator for 40 hours. To even apply to take the registered technician test you have to obtain a pesticide business license or work for a company that has the license.

    you can pm me if you don't want to say on here.

    We're covered on the licensing. Maintenance has grown enormously for us this year and we have been doing granular, but switching to an organic application.
