County Ok's fertilizer ordinance

Laurie E. Trenholm, Professor of Environmental Horticulture at the University of Florida

The Citrus County Commission on Tuesday unanimously voted to accept a fertilizer ordinance that will restrict the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers throughout the county.

Commercial fertilizer applicators are excluded under the ordinance. To address homeowners, the commission will amend the ordinance to allow residents to take classes to learn proper fertilizer application and thus comply with appropriate environmental laws. The amendment is expected to be presented at the commission's Nov. 1 meeting in Inverness.
