Summary of State Fertilizer Laws Resources:​

The Summary of State Fertilizer Laws provides tables comparing more than 30 major items reported by state fertilizer control officials from each state's fertilizer laws. The tables provided on this website via the links below are provided as a resource for companies. 


State laws may contain other provisions and each firm selling fertilizer must be responsible for understanding and complying with all requirements in each state in which it sells fertilizer. To ensure compliance, contact the state control official, click here for the list of state control officials.


The Paperless Fertilizer Tonnage Reporting project aims to provide cost and time savings to both the states and the industry by using an industry standardized format, streamlining the reporting process, and utilizing electronic communication technologies. After nationwide implementation, all industry companies and state fertilizer control officials will benefit from a uniform reporting system that is faster, less error prone, and more efficient both in terms of financial and human resources. The pilot project, launched in February 2013 to prove the concept, has now been successfully completed. The next step for the project is a nationwide initiative for full implementation. 


The project is a collaborative effort among the Association of American Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO), The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) and AgGateway.
