    Does anyone know if you need a license to put down straight granular fertilizer?

    Dude, it is that time of year:

    How do I price this?
    Do I need a license?

    Recognize these threads by title and avoid them. Otherwise you'll be snapping at eevery rookie that enters the site.

    No, in Indiana you don't have to have a license for granular fert, only tank mixed.

    Most of us started out learning from an experienced professional NOT by gaining knowledge from a public lawn forum. Be very careful of taking information you get here as fact. Always do your research. I would suggest spending your time calling your states Department of Agriculture to get your information verses posting basic questions here :)

    Also, since this guy is new and inexperienced, let's clarify this so there is no misunderstanding. Granular or tank mixed has NO BEARING DIFFERENCE on whether he can spray it or not. It is a matter of if it contains pesticide or not. He can mix up a million gallons of fert. in a tank, and go out and spray it until his heart is content. He CANNOT however, put a 1/2 cup of "weed and feed" in his Scott's spreader and apply it to a customer's yard.
