I would be interested in seeing that.
I have been spraying lawns and Erosion Control projects for 5 years now, applying tons and tons of fertilizer, never had an issue.
I have sprayed for Towns, State.

I Have Also talked to many people, that Do Fertilizing as there entire business and they say its perfectly fine for applying fertilizer.

Only restrictions that i know about is the distance from a body of water, on using Phosphorous.


But i can Tell you Right Now. Every Hydroseeder you see, I'd be more then willing to bet they dont have a licience fore Fertilizer, And thats for Big companies, and the Small 100 gal units.

I just called the department of agriculture and here is my response to the fertilizing question
"Do you need a license to spread or spray fertilizer in NH?"
"Not if it is purely organic in nature. However, a "weed and feed" contains pesticides and DOES require a license if you are spreading for hire."

From my pesticide manual they test from in NH
Pes 1.01.21 "Pesticide" means
(B) Any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigatingany insects, rodents, fungi, weeds, or other forms of plant or animal life or viruses the board considers to be a pest.

So this covers grub X or any other grub control and most of your Scott fertilizers and most other comparable brands. As well as round up, weed be gone etc.

Rules for spraying or using pesticides for insects and plants in NH

Department of Agricultures # for further questions 603-271-3551
Anyone interested in obtaining a license here is the contact # 603-271-3550
Keep in mind the obtaining the license covers being tested on all pesticides. here is a pic of the manual 3" thick, both sides of the pages, and not a lot of pictures (sorry Scott) lol

There is nothing wrong with applying Fertilizer without Herbicide or Pesticide.
If your trying to establish a Strong Root system. and establish a lawn.

If you establish a proper root system, the need for chemicals ( weed control ) is minimul. a HEALTHY soil will NATURALLY keep weeks onder control on there own.

Jeez, there must be a FLU going around on PEOPLE buying hydroseeders.

Purchasing a hydroseeder to do touch ups and a couple little jobs a year makes no scence at all. Not saying it because i have one, but to simply save you some money. UNLESS your spraying ACRES a year. atleast 20 your not making much money, there are alot of hidden cost that people arnt aware of.

FOR Your info. I Spray for multiple company's that OWN there own machine. but find it more profitable to HIRE me, a couple are on this site.

Well, you just answered the question, THE FUTURE HYDRO GUY ( you ) wont be using WEED AND FEED in your tank.
Weed and feed will kill any seedlings before they have a chance to sprout
