This application required to issue new Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator certificates to people who do not have a Pesticide License. Renewal forms (to renew a current certificate for the next year) are different and are mailed by the Department when needed. For those who already have a Pesticide License, this form is not needed.

The Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator certificate is for any individual who applies or supervises the application of a commercial fertilizer to more than 50 acres of agricultural production grown primarily for sale. If you have the co-op or other custom applicator make your fertilizer applications, you do not need the certification. Please note that this certification is only required for those applying fertilizer to agricultural land; turf and other non-agricultural applicators are not required to have this certificate.

Please submit the completed application and fee, unless you are also a licensed Pesticide Applicator. Attend a 3-hour AFA training or pass the AFA exam.
