Where do you professionals buy roundup or other weed killers in bulk and how much do you spend per gallon? I know the HD price here for the 2 gallon Pro is $168.00. Is there a cheaper supplier that you use?
at farmsaver.com, you can purchase generic R-up for $17 a gallon if you purchase a 30 gallon drum. My grandfather used it on his farm - same results as R-up and about half the price. I personally use Honcho. Again, much cheaper than R-up with the same results. The thing to keep in mind when purchasing generics, is to look at the % A.I. and the chemical composition. Not all generics are the same. It's all about "buyer beware". If you do your homework and compare apples to apples, you can indeed save yourself a lot of money with generics and get the desired results.Originally posted by azturfpro
I buy roundup for $32.00 a gallon in 30 gallon drums . If you know that you used 60-100 gallons last season why not buy in advance and save the big bucks . I use around 4-600 gallons of roundup a year and buy it all at one time . I buy a whole years fertilizer at one shot and pre-pay for it and pay about 20% less they the companies that I compete with . By pre-paying the dealer agrees to warehouse my product and allow pickup on my schedule . If I am not going to use it all I sell it off to another company to recover any potential loss.
A note to all the guys using the generic roundup . I tried it and lost my --- big time by having callbacks . This stuff is NOT THE SAME as roundup . It takes more chemical to do the same job and ends up costing with callbacks . I will never be fooled again by those selling the generic junk .
