Michigan new guy ... questions

I started my business last year ... just getting started. What are the laws ( is there somewhere I can read them?) in Michigan for applying fertilizer and insect control.
Is it legal to apply what you would normally buy at home depot without a license ( example - scotts products )?
Is liguid fertilizing the best way to go? If so why? Where would you buy the fertilizer in bulk to get best price (bagged)? Are there laws on storage?
I know it seems like a lot of questions ... can you help?

First off, you need a license to apply ANY pesticide if you are accepting money to do it. It does matter if you were given the chemicals for free. Michigan Dept of Ag will answer your questions, or you can go to your county Co-operative Extension office. They'll help you out.

Call the MGIA. (248) 646-4992.

They are hosting a Certified Applicator/Registered Technician Seminar. At the Novi Expo March 16-18. You will need at least one full time Certified Applicator employed to get your Business licensed.

Good luck.

G with E - I thought the Expo was somewhere closer to Mar 3 or 4 or 5. I'll have to look it up now, to make sure.

I know the Expo is March 3-4.
I am talking about a seperate CARTS program the MGIA is holding.

If he is looking to get certified it may be worth looking into.
