This is some info I can offer from Colorado. It took me a year and a half to get this answer. Basicly straight fert application that is deposited on the ground, not sprayed. Does not need a License. Herbicides are considered pesticides and by EPA regulations are controlled as hazardous (this is for all states). Special permits and certification are needed. (which I agree with) plain old Fertilizers such as Ammonia Sulfate, complete Ferts (30-15-5 and such), and soil admendments do not need special permits. However, the extension office I worked with to find this out and the state office could not find guidelines on this in writing.
Here is the link for Colorado:

With the chemical side of things I feel the same about it as I do in the Lawn Care biz, be fully certified and trianed, be licensed and Insured for ALL the services you offer.

There is some more research you should do before you put your plan together. You're on the right track to get the testing and such, but you will also have to have a certain time period of experience working under a licensed firm or company to aquire your own business license. . For your state, it is atleast 90 days working under that category, or 1 year under some of the other categories.

Something like this should be locked at the top of this forum to help new members find their way.
Jim,

Would you please tell me about fertilizers on lawns in Indiana. Do I need licensing for just this?
Please email me at mowmygrass@yahoo.com
Thank You,
Jay

JayD,

You do not need a license to apply straight fertilizer. Anything with pesticide such as a weed and feed type Scotts junk etc. require a license. You will have to take at least 2 tests(core and 3B) as well as have experience. There is also a 2 day class that eliminates the expreience requirement. Search for OISC or Office Indiana State Chemist in a search engine and that should point you in the right direction. The classes and testing are through Purdue.
