Maybe there's a disconnect, here. I KNOW you have to have a license to apply pest./herb.. Conceded.

MY question was/is.....are you saying an LCO has to posess a license to spread fert.? If so, can you cite in that link where it says so?

Thanks.

Either way, I'm covered (licensed). But, I wasn't aware someone needed a lic. to simply apply fertilizers.

From that link....

You do not need a lic. if just applying fertilizer and fertilizer only (atleast here in NJ).
Pretty sure this is the case in NC, too.

Again, are you saying otherwise?

Don't know what state NS is, but if you have cool season grasses, check out this extensin office website... There are a lot of people who will bash the timing, becuz it cuts into their number of apps, but if you are wanting to grow grass for people and do a good job for them, then this is a good starting place...

Re

I must have been drunk when I read your post...ha No, you do not need a license to spread JUST fertilizer to help the soils fertility. You do if the fertilizer treats a pest, like an unwanted grass, crabgrass etc.
