i'm in the same boat. started working for others in the fert and weed control business in 1994. i started on my own mid season this year.
i have went with gopher software as well, i liked the chemical tracking on it much better than some of the competition software in the same price range. not to mention i like the one price i paid for gopher over something with monthly fees.
using the computer while out in the field kinda slows me down a little bit, but can cut down on the amount of data entry at the end of the day..
. i'm still trying to figure out the most effecient way to use this software for chem apps, but overall, for the money it seems like a good program for a startup company.. and you can demo it first.

I signed up here just looking to share ideas and get see what everyone else does. I am considering Gopher Software for my billing and scheduling. Ive been using real green for years, at the 2 former employers. So Im still up in the air.
