yup check with your state...some states don't require you to have a fertilizer license, but a pesticide license is needed

here in Michigan no to fert, but yes to pesticide. Sometimes I wish that they would have for fertilization because of the people that are not trained and put it down incorrectly. Fertilizer is just as poisonous as pesticides. A lot of cities here in Michigan have banned phosphorous fertilizer applications

to put pesticides down on turf in Michigan you have to pass the core exam first, and then the Category 3A Turfgrass exam.
