TURF FERTILIZER REPORTING TOOL

The Virginia Fertilizer Law requires contractor-applicators, state agencies, localities and other governmental entities to report to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services the annual acreage or square footage of fertilizer applied to nonagricultural (lawn and turf) lands. The area is reported in terms of total acres or total square feet by zip code.

How Do I Report Area that Receives More Than One Treatment Per Year?

Report only the size of the area treated, regardless of the number of fertilizer applications. Multiple fertilizer applications to an area are not to be reported as additional area treated for each application. (Example: A yard that is one acre in area and which receives four fertilizer applications in a calendar year is reported as one acre, not four acres).

Fertilizer contractor-applicators and licensees who apply to less than 100 acres of nonagricultural lands each year do not have to submit this report.
