Prices, Prices, Prices!

I have been collecting quotes for chemicals from a number of suppliers. What strikes me is the similarity in prices between suppliers until you start to discuss terms. And what terms. 100% deferred payment until harvest! Sounds great, sign me up, that will really help with the cash flow. That is until you see the prices hike up by 30%. Effectively a loan for five months that's gonna cost you an extra 30%. Not so great.
