Event Details




This provides the training and testing necessary to obtain a Limited Certification for Urban Landscape Commercial Fertilizer (LCULCF). FL Senate Bill 494 requires all commercial fertilizer applicators to have a LCULCF as of January 1, 2014.


This program teaches the Best Management Practices for anyone working, supervising or advising in the lawn, landscape, pest control, or municipal grounds areas. The training is focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from fertilization or pesticide application.


Anyone who applies fertilizer commercially is required to have GI-BMP Certification.



Many Counties have adopted Fertilizer Use and Landscape Management Ordinances; check your County for details.


The Hillsborough County Landscape Management and Fertilizer Use Rule and the City of Tampa Fertilizer Ordinance require all commercial, governmental and institutional fertilizer applicators to be GI-BMP certified and that work vehicles be identified with a vehicle decal.


The fertilizer rules and ordinances apply to all residents and owners of urban property, not just commercial applicators.



BMP certification will be awarded to those passing the exam, usually within 30 days of taking the exam.
