Geez... go to LESCO (if you have one nearby) they will help you.
I understand that you "know the equations bla bla bla" but do you know what the hell you are doing? Man, this attitude just gets under my skin. You sound like you have a long way to go before you are ready to start applying fertilizers and pesticides on a professional level.

It seems like a broken record on here, but so many people join here and act like because they're in "scoo" (quoting above), they know what they're doing. You can take classes and read, but so much in this business is actually using and applying what you've learned. To me, it sounds like you have you know very little on what you're doing, and aren't willing to listen to any advice.

Also, I'm usually not one to call the grammar police but wtf is "scoo"...If you're in "scoo", you should be able to form complete sentences and spell...

If you take classes to get your 3-A/B license I bet you will meet some sales reps from the local fert/pest dealers that can help you out. Just a thought.

Lesco has route drivers that deliver materials and parts now. Call one of the stores and get your route drivers number or see if they can come your direction. Or try BWI they deliver too, but it depends on quanity. They carry Andersons, Howard Johnsons, Scotts, etc.

There is so much more to managing the fertility of a lawn than you seem to be aware of.

Before you get a list of suppliers, you need to go ahead and finish that blah blah school -- get certified, and learn all you can.

Getting the materials will be the easy part -- their are dozens of places dying to sell to you -- but first figure out what you are doing!
