All applicators of fertilizer (except homeowners on their own property) must receive training and certification in a Charlotte County approved Best Management Practices (BMP) Training Program.

If your company applies fertilizer to turf or landscape plants in Charlotte County, you must abide by the following information to be compliant with new Ordinance requirements in effect June 14, 2011.  

  • You must obtain a Certificate of Completion from a Charlotte County approved Best Management Practices training class.

  • Ensure that all employees work under the physical supervision of a certified applicator.

  • Make sure that designated certified applicators from your company receive training from a Charlotte County approved Best Management Practices training class within 90 days of employment.

  • Display Charlotte County's official BMP-certified decal (shown above) in the window of all company vehicles and trailers used in connection with the application of fertilizer by September 18, 2008.  Charlotte County will recognize and accept GREEN INDUSTRIES Best Management Practices Certifications obtained from surrounding Counties.
