Why do I need this bond?

Florida fertilizer dealer bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (fertilizer dealers) make true and full reports of the volume of fertilizer sold as provided in section 576.041 of the Florida Statutes and pay the Commissioner of Agriculture the fee per ton as determined and required by Chapter 576 of the Florida Statutes.

If the principal fails to conduct business according to these terms, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss.

What’s the fine print?

Fertilizer dealer bonds in Florida are continuous until canceled. The principal or surety can cancel the bond upon giving written notice of cancellation to the other party and the Commissioner of Agriculture 30 days prior to the desired date of termination.

How to become a fertilizer dealer in Florida

Applicants can apply to become a licensed fertilizer dealer on the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumers Services website.

Florida’s Commercial Fertilizer Law (Chapter 576 FS) requires a person whose name appears on a fertilizer label as guarantor to obtain a fertilizer license in the amount of $200. All licenses expire annually on June 30.

Once an applicant has been issued a license to distribute fertilizer in Florida, he or she will be issued a password and user ID to update registration information and report monthly fertilizer tonnage data.

Complete licensing information can be accessed via the Additional Resources section of this page. Begin the licensing process by purchasing the surety bond you need now!
