    I need some help finding the cheapest, yet not unprofessional, fertilizer distributer. Right now I am paying $17 per 50 lb bag of 22-0-11. I'm also paying about $700 for a 30 gallon drum of 3 way herbicide. Anybody know anywhere I can get it any cheaper than that?

    $17 is a good price for fert. I once purchased some fert that was not name brand from a reputable place and it turned out to me a big problem. The Iron source used in the fert was very dirty. We ended up with rust spots all over the place.

    I only use fert that is Lesco or Andersons grade product. Once in the past I got some fert from Ewing Irrigation that had wood chips and splinters in it.
