    I don't know how anyone could price salt at this point unless you have contracted prices for 14/15 season.


    Is that a flat rate push for 2 or 24in ?

    I'd be lower...but that's my costs and my market. Not a clue what your market or overhead is...

    Yea, I don't think 175/acre would fly around here either. More like 400-425 plus salt.

    Thanks for the input. I guess I didn't think of it at 175/acre I think I will lower my price down some

    That's what I charged last year. But I used bagged. Looking to go bulk this year so I'm looking at 18 cents on lots over an acre.

    Be @ $325 a push up to 6" here. I would want another $50 per inch after that if waiting until the end.
    Salt, still learning.

    Well I have reevaluated after all thats been said. Im now 430 for the push and 477 with salt. which seems a little more realistic i think.

    I enlarged it, and took a good look this time. I think I too would want $430 per push, and $50 per inch over 6". I underestimated the size and islands. There's a solid 3 hours of work there for my truck if I hustled. Looks like a good spot for the wings.
