    How did you come up with the price? Off the top of my head, it seems a bit low for almost two acres.

    Fert: $249 per app.
    WC/IC/CGP: $332 per app.
    Lime: $290.50 per app. (heavy rate lime =40#/M pelletized)

    Program would be billed at $297.42 per application.

    Hope this helps.
