Attention green industry personnel:
Florida Statute 482.1562 states that all commercial fertilizer applicators must have a Limited Certification for Urban Landscape Commercial Fertilizer license from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) by January 1, 2014. To get this license, each Green Industry worker must attend a Green Industries-Best Management Practices training and receive a certificate of completion from UF/IFAS and FDEP. This program teaches environmentally safe landscaping practices that help conserve and protect Florida’s ground and surface waters.
