    Is broadcasting straight fertilizer in a customers yard without a license illegal in Kentucky?? All these threads I have read are confusing me because I was under the impression that I could not fertilize without a license. I am going to try and get one soon but if I don't have to have one for fertilizer application, then I may reconsider even worrying about it. All post appreciated.:dizzy:

    Most states do not require a license to apply regular fert. I would check with Kentucky's state chemist office or whatever it's called down there.

    You cannot apply chemicals or fertilizers to any persons lawn for money without a license here.

    No not even fertilizer. You can do it but dont get caught by the State Ag or get turned in by a LCO with a license or you will pay the fine.
