    If you're looking for a way to really boost your revenue, get your applicator license! Its gonna take alot of studying and a tough test, but you can charge a premium!

    You had two out of staters - one from Ky and one from Indiana give you two different answers.

    Your best bet would be to go to this link and check the local laws in S.D.

    I am afraid jerry offered the most help. I had guys telling me I had to get licenses or I couldn't apply fert either. I went to the Missouri ag department who told me I could dispense anything sold at the discount stores (scott's etc.) but if I wanted to purchase and apply restricted herbicides etc, I would have to come in to their office sometime to watch a 3 hour movie and do a fill in test while watching to get my license. It seems it varies a little from state to state.

    I would agree to check with dept. of ag. In WI it is legal. Not that I like it because people often claim to be professionals, but they have to subcontract or not spray weeds on bids that you lose to them.
