    Here in FL you must be in the business for at least 3 yrs. before you can even take the test. You are talking about applying herbicides to plant beds right? As far as I know, you don't need a license to apply fertilizer alone. That's the way it is here anyway. I know because I've been stopped and told not to spray roundup anymore but was told I could still apply fertilizer but not weed and feed.I now pay a pest control co. $300 per month to apply roundup to the mulch bed areas on my commerical properties.Unfortunately I still have a yr. or so to go untill I'll have my three yrs in. Like I say it could be completely different in your state. Good luck.
