    I have a different approach to this pricing problem, concerding the unknown cost of fuel for the whole season.
    I apply a 30-3-11 50%s.c.u. 2x per season,Mec-amine d herbicide 2x per season 3.5 pts/acre,merrit 5g 60 lbs/ June.
    Pricing-fertilizer 1.90 / 1000
    Herbicide 1.84 / 1000
    Merrit 8.55 / 1000
    Let me know what you people think!!!!!!
