County Ordinances Prohibit Using Fertilizers with Nitrogen and Phosphorus through September 30


BRADENTON – The Sarasota Bay Estuary Program and other partners of the Be Floridian fertilizer education campaign remind Sarasota and Manatee County residents they cannot apply fertilizer with nitrogen or phosphorus from June 1 through September 30.

Not using fertilizers in the summer reduces the amount of chemicals running into Sarasota Bay following heavy rainfalls. The overuse of nitrogen and phosphorus has an adverse impact on water quality and can also harm aquatic life.
