  • Using herbicides in Indiana

    As far as I can tell, there is no regulations or requirements for fertilizing lawns commercially in Indiana. I'm pretty sure pesticides are regulated by certifications.

    I am not sure about herbicides, however. Does anyone know?

    I am doing research on this, beside posting this question. Ive not fund much yet. Thank you for any information.

    The above referenced law requires licensing by the Indiana State Chemist of any person engaged in lawn care service before that person may distribute a tank mixed liquid fertilizer to private, institutional, or commercial entities for compensation to maintain and nourish turf, shrubbery, trees, and other plants.

      Indiana applicator requirements

      In Indiana, you also now need to be certified to do organic fertilization.

        Certifications

        If you collect money for spreading/spraying fertilizer/pesticide/herbicide/incesticide on a a cutomers lawn you MUST be certified. Check with the Indiana State Chemist office which is located at Purdue University. As Steve said.

          Certifications

          I forgot to mention that your company needs to be liscensed to do this work. I am not talking about a business liscense but a fertilization specific liscense for the business itself along with specific insurance.
