The law was passed in Jan. 2011. All professional fertilizer applicators must be certified by the State or work under a certified applicator after 40 hours of training. Rutgers is providing an online training course and test.
The law restricts the amount of N applied per application and annual amount. A certain % must be slow release N.
P is only permitted if determined by soil test, or when seeding, or when using certain organic fertilizers.
No fertilizers may be applied between Dec. 1 and March 1.
This law supersedes all local laws regarding fertilizers.
It's really not hard to comply with.
