I just got off of the phone with Mike, the state chemist. He told me that it is completely legal to spread granular fert. He said I only need a license to apply the liquid stuff. Over the past few years, I have lost a ton of business because I always thought that you had to be licensed. Anyways, is the liquid stuff cheaper or easier to deal with? The license is only $100 a year, no training required. Also, after material etc. What do you guys charge per 1,000 square feet? I have an idea of what TruGreen charges because they apply for most of my mowing customers. I picked up several accounts thanks to TruGreen so I hate to steal there business, but I feel that I should provide both services for my customers. Thanks... BTW, he said the pesticide license was more complicated and required training. Does this apply to the granular or does it matter?
