y'all surely realize that mere relabeling of bags from a marketing term 'lawn maintenance' to something else will NOT give you the intended reduction in P in our streams and Bay?

VA just missed major educational, data collection and fiscal opportunities to
1. get industry service providers and homeowners to soil test BEFORE using ANY FERTILIZER ANYWHERE

2. publish that data on Google Earth/GIS to demonstrate that test has been done within 3 years for the 'crop' turfgrass and that it needs P for maintenance...

3. the ability to collect fines/fees to fund Nutrient Management Education if no proof of soil test/recommendation from lab for P for lawn maintenance.

Way to go VA. At least it's a start. I have serious doubts that lawn over fertilization is that critical when compared to farmers over applying fertilizer along with manure. I can see over fertilization at golf courses. When is MD and PA going to pass such a law?
