This class is required by Manatee County to provide training in Fertilizer Best Management Practices for anyone working in the landscape maintenance industry who applies fertilizers. It is focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from landscape maintenance activities. This class is also known as the GI-BMP class or Green Industry - Best Management Practice class.
