    Runner pointed out that fertilizer is increasiing by 30+%. He's right. Here Potassium is about 150/thousand lb. That's way over the 130/thousand last year and going up.
    However another looming problem--Since John Deere has acquired Lesco--when was the last time a company takeover dropped the price of their product. It might be worthwhile to get the Lesco Price on the Herb/Pesticides before John Deere puts THEIR Price on Lesco Products. Unopened--Shelf Llife is probably a year. Think about it

    Lesco want hold a price longer than two weeks. So if you can store fert u
    better buy all u can. Gas has gone up about 30cents in three weeks. im
    going up on prices have no choice.
