Fertilizer Program

Mark Ashcroft, Program Manager, (435) 755-1578

What We Do:

We administer the Utah Fertilizer Act. The program regulates the registration, distribution, sale, use, and storage of fertilizer products. It regulates and licenses fertilizer blenders and monitors the applicators that spray or apply fertilizer and takes samples for analysis.

Feed and Fertilizer Testing Lab:

The Feed Lab tests commercial feed samples for moisture, protein, fat, fiber, minerals, toxins, antibiotics, and vitamins. Seed moisture determinations are also performed for the seed laboratory. The Fertilizer Lab tests solid and liquid fertilizer samples for nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and trace elements. All feed and fertilizer results are compared to label guarantees to ensure compliance with state labeling laws.

Fertilizer Fees:

  • Fertilizer Blenders License $75.00
