Your right let me point you to where you can find the regulations; BING.COM or GOOGLE.COM. You live in California; look it up or check with your agricultural extension or even a pesticide applicator...

I'll even give you a couple of key words... "California restricted use of posphates in fertilizers"; you can even add nitrogen to the mix and open up a whole new world of possibilities.

There is no beneficial interest to me in what you do in the weird..er I mean west coast

Perhaps you meant percolate?
Probably percolate.. but embezzling has possibilities; how much are we talking about?

I see ... so in other words you spoke (again) without having all your facts in place.

FYI ... don't need google ....

Note the highlighted text, go back to the original posts and let me know if I have missed anything such as stating a law already having been enacted in California.

"Previous posts have already stated that communities in their neck of the woods have outlawed them or restricted their use... CA, FL for sure have restricted use laws for the application of certain chemicals (fertilizer components among them) on landscape installation and will soon require State Licensing to do so... no matter what the stated dilution rate. license I already posses."

"While attending a conference at the Agricultural extension here to obtain continuing education units for my LICENSE, the topic of fertilizer restrictions (among other things) was on the agenda. California is one among many states that are currently in the process of limiting, restricting or outright banning Phosphorous in lawn fertilizers."

"Also, like Florida, California, NY and some other states, are considering limiting the amount of nitrogen permitted per a given sqf. and considering re-labeling currently over the counter chemicals like Roundup to restricted use."

CDFA Regulations: Title 3 of the California Code of Regulations, Sections 2302 and 2303

http://www.healthyplants.org/newsrel...snotfear2.html (discusses fertilizer components as mentioned above in CA)

http://naturalfoodsmerchandiser.com/...gulations.aspx (discusses regulation related to organic fertilizer in CA)

http://www.environmentcalifornia.org...rm-fertilizers (discusses proposed legislation in CA)

Rumage around here: http://saffii.com/statelaw.aspx

States also mentioned at the FL. extension CEU course.

Manufacturing restrictions on heavy metals in products and product labeling regulation. Does not address in any way restrictions on application.

Once again ... manufacturing restrictions on heavy metals in products and product labeling regulation. Does not address in any way restrictions on application.

What does landscape maintenance have anything to do with certified organic food production? Furthermore, synthetic fertilizers are not allowed in certified organic food production .... not even manufactured urea. Finally, this has nothing to do with your claim of phosphorous application restrictions nor does it apply to the discussion.

And still no link to a regulation or even a proposed regulation on restricting phosphorous application. What a shame.
