How do you become certified for fert?

I just got the bid sheets in the mail for a realestate company and man there must be over 700-800 properties on these sheets. But all of them need Round up specified to be sprayed once a month. I'm thinking they need to see your certification papers before they will except any bids. It's such B.S. that you need to be certified to spray Round up.

.Go to your county extension agent, here in Illinois, you are registered with the department of ag.The extension service provides, all test materials.

And no, it isnít BS, to have a bunch of unlicensed grass cutter applicators
