As a reminder to all green industry professionals ~ Beginning on January 1, 2014, all commercial fertilizer applicators will be required to hold a Limited Certification for Urban Fertilizer Applicators. The prerequisite of this license is the successful completion of the Green Industry Best Management Practices, or GI-BMP program. GI-BMPs teach safe landscaping practices that protect the environment, including our ground and surface waters. The University of Florida IFAS Florida Friendly Landscaping™ program presents GI-BMP programs throughout the state.
