Fertilizer Manufacturer/Distributors and Soil Conditioners LicenseAgency: Agriculture and Rural Development
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) administers licenses, registrations, inspects and tests fertilizer, soil conditioner, and liming materials distributed or manufactured in Michigan.
Michigan's fertilizer program regulates over 500 manufacturers and distributors of over 1.45 million tons of fertilizer, soil conditioner, and liming materials for both farm and non-farm use. Michigan farmers and residents rely on this quality assurance and consumer protection program to maximize yields and maintain a profitable farm operation. In addition, millions of state residents depend on this program to protect them from fraud when purchasing fertilizer for home and garden use.
