Promo is correct about no license needed for fertilizer. The link above is the website for a copy of the law. How you might find it a little confusing. There are many many pesticide licenses in Florida.

First let me say, the LAW IS NOT FAIR. anyone can go to the County Extension Agent and take a test to apply chemicals to our lakes and river etc. But you must have 3 year experience in the green industry to take a test to apply Roundup. Under the Dept of Agi there are different bureaus that issue Licenses. Each Bureau had different standards of Qualifying to take the test. The Pest Control Lawn & Ornamental Industry has a strong Lobby that and is against the spraying of Roundup by anyone else. Now the fact is. You can be fined $ 5,000.00 for appling Roundup or any Chemical without the proper License in Florida. There are some loop holes, but don't try and look for them, they will cost you more than they are worth.
