After taking into accoutn all my drive time, fertilzer costs, herbicide costs, time to apply fert and pesticides. I made $70 per hour doing fert and weed control. Have any of you ever analyzed it down to the dollar per hour you earned? My concern is I am making too much per hour to still be competitive. I am goign to be reworking my program this year for less fert as I think I had too much N in the program and my P was criticized so I am looking and removing the P from the applications. I also know costs are going way up this year so I was wondering if anyone else had analyzed how much they made per hour at fert and weed control. Of course you cannot account for equipment etc (but thats what the overhead which formulates your actual hourly rate), but I am using a backpack sprayer, lesco spreader, chevy silverado 1500 and thats it.
