I received a flyer from Scotts today, and looking over it theirs a disclaimer that says "The Maryland Nutrient Management Law requires an initial soil test. The one-time additional fee for this soil test is $_____" First: I wonder what they charge for that. Second: I wasnt aware that a soil test was mandatory. Third: I did some research and could find anything in the books on a mandatory soil test. The majority of law is geared toward person(s) managing 10 acres or more of Agricultural land. It does cover non-agricultural properties as well but I still could nt find anything that relates to commercial applications of lawn chemicals. Anyone familiar with this law and its requirements for LCO's?
