Nursery/Dealer and Pesticide Licensing and Inspections
Michigan law states that any person, firm, partnership, association, or corporation engaged in the business of growing, selling, or reshipping winter-hardy perennial plants must be licensed. Our licensing agency is the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development or go to http://www.michigan.gov/mdard/0,4610,7-125-1569_16993_16998---,00.html for more information.
Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, P.A. 451, As Amended, and Regulation 636, As Amended, require individuals to be either a certified pesticide applicator or registered applicator to apply a pesticide for a commercial purpose or in the course of his or her employment. A person may apply a general use pesticide for a private agricultural purpose without being a certified applicator or registered applicator.
A private agricultural applicator, who plans to use a restricted-use pesticide product, may apply for a private pesticide applicator certification credential.
