    Since I am new to the whole fertilizer application thing I am trying to figure everything out. I am hoping to get my applicators license within the next year and possible start either next year or the following. I understand that when pricing you charge a base charge just for stopping to do the account and then X amount per 1000 sq ft. And of coarse X is your cost for what ever is being applied and then labor costs. My biggest question is how would I determine my labor costs per 1000 sq ft in the future? Do I just add a couple dollars (like $2) or is there some more math to it? Any imput would be helpful to me. Thanks for your help.
