    No certification needed to apply fertilizer. However, they will sell anything that is not restricted use to anybody from homeowner to lco's.

    don't know about where you are but in Indiana you do have to be certified to fertilize a lawn...unless its your own...if your charging for it, you gotta be certified and licensed.

    Hamons, I was told that in Kansas if you are getting paid to apply anything to someones yard you must be certified. I actually got this information through a phone call from the state of Kansas threatening me with 1000.00 for each customer infraction.
