Fertilizer Certification Signed into Ohio Law

In June, Governor Kasich signed the Ohio agriculture nutrients law which will require farmers applying fertilizer to 50 acres or more to become certified. This certification is part of a broader initiative developed by a task force convened in 2012 with several Ohio agencies participating. The task force focused on developing recommendations for improving Ohio’s waterways while maintaining the integrity of the region’s agricultural industry.

A fact sheet about the new law is available from ODA. The new law is Ohio Revised Code 905.321-322 and can be accessed here and here.

Addiitonal information, including training dates, is available on the Ohio Nutrient Education and Mangement website.
