    Do you need a license to apply fertilizers and weed control in the state of Alabama?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    You dont have to be licensed to apply fert, but you do if you're applying herbicides, even if its weed and feed. Contact the AL Dept of Agriculture and Industries in Montgomery and they'll send you the study info for free.

    Actually,all of the study material isn't free.You have to purchase some of the material from Auburn.The freebie,really doesn't have much of anything in it.

    To their website:

    To the Pest Management section of their website:

    And Nick is right...some of the materiel you have to pay for.

    Oh, here is their contact page for Pest Managment. I think Ava Mann is who you will need to contact for study material.
