I just fulfilled my weed control obligation to uncle sam for my CRP acres and the per acre cost with the anti drift, adhering agent, the chemical, and the aerial application (due to wet ground, ground equipment couldn't be used) came to $22.40 per acre. The contract I signed back in '98 allowed $3 per acre for weed control. That comes out to over a 700% increase in costs. Just some insight into some of the causes. This one's gonna leave a mark.
