    you do NOT need a license to apply FERTILIZER in nj. u can do it with a broadcast spreader, drop spreader, or and other way u like, no license is required. you do understand, fertilizer, is JUST fertilizer? no herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides.

    Not quite so Bobby. There actually is a fertilizer license in some states and you might be required to have it.

    Want more info? You will have to go somewhere else, becuase I don't know. I only know that an LCO I am friends with here in VA had to have one.

    If it is not too much reading there is a link at the top of Pesticide form. You can find out where to read your state laws about pesticide and fertilizer application.

    Side note for the last time this question was ask.

    An educated man doesn't always know the answers. However he knows how to fine the answers. This is the theory behind higher learning. Those who are too lazy to read should not consider themselves educated or intelligent.

    Come on now. This thread wasn't started with the intention to talk about spelling. If we all looked hard enough, we probably would find a lot of spelling/typing errors in a lot of our posts.

    If I wouldn't have been shopping, and I was here reading LS, I too would have removed your post.
    Simply because I would have known that the thread would have gone downhill.
    I know you may not like being in the top 5 Bobby in Ric's list, but I don't think that's a reason that you two can't get along.
    Did you really have to pick on Ric's spelling? Now I'm not going to proof-read my post, so be gentle and don't pick out my mistakes, k?
    Be nice. :)

    o, i love ric. i have no problem with him, other than i feel his post was a slam against people, like myself, who did not have the opportunity to get an education. do you think i like being stupid? don't you think it's embarassing to me, to not be able to hold a conversation when i'm around people who are as smart as ric? my family was poor, i had to quit high school to help feed my baby sister, i wish i had the opportunity to spend a ton of money on an education that was worthless, but, i didn't. i think ric owes me, and all the other "less privlaged" members, an apology. i'm hurt man, really, hur
