New State Rule for Ag Fertilizer

Effective January 1, 2012, anyone who is hired to apply, handle or transport fertilizer for agricultural purposes within Indiana must become certified through the Office of the Indiana State Chemist and Seed Commissioner.

The new rule also requires certification for anyone applying manure from confined feeding operations. Certification exams are conducted at the Purdue University-based OISC, with exams available at remote testing sites starting in January.

Purdue Pesticide Programs will offer a training manual in January. “Category 14 Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator” will sell for $32 and be available through Purdue Extension’s The Education Store at The Education Store.
