Ban on Phosphorus – Public Act 299


As passed in the Michigan Legislature last December, “Beginning January 1, 2012… a person shall not apply to turf a fertilizer labeled as containing the plant nutrient available phosphate (P2O5).”

While the outcome was not entirely ideal for the Green Industry, MNLA worked diligently to secure key changes that lessened the negative effects.

We have commitments from partnering organizations and are working on introducing changes that will improve this Act for the Green Industry. CLICK HERE to see the language of Public Act 299 (PDF)
