    I have someone that wants me to do some custom spraying for them. They have a contract mowing a place and need about 3 miles of RR tracks sprayed. They are looking for pre and post what would be the best bang for the buck. thanks

    look at sahara. If there is large brush os small trees look at adding garlon 3 to the mix.
    Sahara is about 40 bucks for a lb i think it is 1 to 9lb per acre depending on the
    volume, the garlon is about 70 per gallon.

    This is a good job for a helicopter.

    Find out if the railroad sprays this--many do so, twice per year.

    What kind of access and terrain do you have to deal with? A tractor with a boom sprayer would be a good option--however--chances are the terrain is not all smooth enough. I am sure the railroad will not permit you to drive on the tracks. How many bridges, creeks, swamps, overpasses?

    What is the steepest slope?
