    Has anyone tried to use organic methods? I can't get fertilzer liscense for this year so I was considering using it to my advantage by marketing myself as organic. Anyone try this as a niche? Used search for finding organic sites but would love any other info that might be worthwhile.

    In most stated you dont need a license to apply fertilizer. You only need a license to apply pesticides. Check with your state!

    We use orgainc fertilizer alot because of the result ...but the price is steeper. Plus there is a an organic combination that works just like round-up...pretty cool...though it still hits the pocket book

    i dont know about you guys, but IPM if that is what you are talking about is a blend of like 4 things. cultural, biological, mechanical? and chemical when all else fails. i dont really think we are ever gonna get away from chemical. ipm works, however if you get a situation that is out of control it just takes way too long to get results from ipm.
