Spraying for Neighboring Farmers

The deal I discussed above spraying for co op didn't work out. They tried paying me $5 less than what they were going to charge the growers for application fees. I know my trusted neighboring farmers will still want me to spray for them. In nevada it is legal to spray for me to spray other farmers fields, as long as no money changes hands, and the work is traded. Should I lease my sprayer to the farmers and have them buy non restricted chemical? How would you go about doing this? There are 3 other custom applicators that spray here and aren't licensed and buy the chemical and bill the farmer for application and chemical. That doesn't seem very smart. I'm not doing this to make alot of money, I'm just trying to help farmers I know because the quality of work here is very hard to find. Thanks
