Educating with Extension Newsletters
Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved.
For our August 2021 newsletter, we featured an article written by Michelle Leonard-Mularz, Environmental Horticulture Agent. Monroe County Passes Fertilizer Ordinance.
"Monroe County Board of County Commissioners recently passed a fertilizer ordinance with the intent of limiting nutrient applications to turf and landscape plants, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, since those nutrients have the potential to contribute to water pollution through surface water runoff. The ordinance titled, Monroe County Ordinance for Florida-Friendly Fertilizer Use on Urban Landscapes, is contained within Chapter 12, Article 2 of the Code of Ordinances, and spells out certain restrictions, requires the use of best management practices, and requires proper training by commercial applicators and landscape maintenance companies."
