It means big brother is going to be in your wallet for one. It also means there is paper work for every fert app you do and if something is not right when you get "audited" by dem you get fined if they feel like it....

It's a lot of hassle from DEM and the state on what you can use where and when and near what and you have to record how much you use at what rate and how you weren't near a water table and how you disposed of the bags or liquid. It's a LOT of them watching you. Not to mention you can get pulled over if you are a commercial vehicle and the cops see fert in the back of your truck

Thats the reason why im not interested in it. State of ri will let you use organic ferts and anything without cide in it such as fungicide,pestacide.. and so on. As of right now i will use what im allowed to.

Actually you cant. If you are a legit company and registered you are considered commercial. If you are commercial you can not apply with out a certification.

even if you arent a legit compmany you still can not apply. pesticides or not.

Big Irish will back me up on this

Very true, even with "organic" you still have to have an applicator license. Anytime you are putting something down and getting paid you are a commercial applicator and need a license. Even to spray roundup you need to be an applicator

i spoke with a woman named robin mooney from the state. Im wont argue the fact. But i went straight to the source.. Explained my situation to her. And she said as long as it is organic and has no weed killer or insectacide, you are fine. You can put down lime and purer ferts. Myself... I dont do much of this anyway. But I wanted to cover my a$$
