    Currently we sub out all of our fert and spraying ect. Ive orderd the study materials for 3a and 3b. Now as Ive read it, I dont need an applicators lic. to spread granular fertilizer. Is this correct? Ive read all the websites I can find via the great links pinned at the top of the page. I just am looking for a lil info.

    Thanks

    As long as it is not a weed & Feed and is just fertilizer, you can put it down. If you spray a liquid fertilizer, you need a license. Granular you don't need one.

    Tri county, you really need to take a look at the Indiana state chemist site. I am sure I remember them telling me if I put anything down for hire I had to be licensed.

    I researched long to be sure I was legal applying fertilizer before I was licensed-It is legal to apply fertilizer for hire in Indiana...As soon as you put any product down that targets a "pest" that being a weed, fungus, or insect for hire, you need a license.

    Chimney is correct but it cannot contain any weed control product at all.

    i thought i read that you need to register (send them $100) and give the name of the person and company applying the fertilizer. just call them 765-494-1594
