Hi Grower No you dont have to endorse my products to win my contests.I glad you asked this question.You can still win 1st place & all paying spots growing with any ones products.What I am offering is BONUS money for exclusive grows using Marks Mixes.You can double your $500 first prize with a Bronze Membership ($300) using all 6 products any way you wish.So it would pay $1000 for first.BuTT if you do a exclusive grow you will double your double to $2000 & if you grow a WR in your category it will also get a 1,000 boost.So a WR Exclusive Squash would pay $3,000. Exclusive means you would only use my Root Keeper as your Mycorrhizae/Baccillius/Trichoderma product (no others). Marks Special Tea would be your only Amino acid foliage/drench product used.The other products Grow-Bloom-Pumpkin Power-Cal Mag.should be you only products used in there daily feedings. NOT using there equivalents in another line of growing products.You CAN use products I dont make like Azos- Cal Carb Potassium silicates etc. You must submit a exclusive testimonial to Marks Mixes to claim prize money & any seeds required by the rules to get full compensation.I will negotiate a low seed count.Low seed count is less then 125 seeds,anything higher I will expect the seeds. Thanks for asking looking forward to shaking your hand in Niagara Falls. Mark(Bubba)
