Fertilizer Ban – Vermont – Don’t “P” On Your Lawn – Anti-Phosphorus Prohibition – 2012 04 23
Vermont Law BANNING Phosphorus
Enviro-Lunatic Mis-Information Campaign
Called « Don’t “P” On Your Lawn »
Leads to Anti-Phosphorus PROHIBITION
Law BANS against popular turf fertilizers ― no more “P” on Vermont lawns ― with fines of up to 500 dollars.
A new state law THEORETICALLY PROTECTS Vermont’s waterways by reducing the level of phosphorus run-off, despite SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE showing that turf fertilizers are NOT a major source of phosphorus pollution.
In fact, PROHIBITION has NOT, and will NOT, help reduce phosphorus loading in lakes.
A legislative act, passed in 2011, which took effect January 1st, 2012, has OUTLAWED THE APPLICATION OF PHOSPHORUS FERTILIZERS on lawns, with a few exceptions.
It came in the wake of a REPULSIVE ENVIRO-LUNATIC CAMPAIGN called « Don’t “P” On Your Lawn » which was organized by Lake Champlain Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations to MIS-INFORM home-owners against the use of phosphorus fertilizers on their lawns, unless a soil test indicated that they needed it.
« Don’t “P” On Your Lawn » was also TREACHEROUSLY SUPPORTED by Cornell University, a NEST of Anti-Pesticide and Anti-Fertilizer Lunatics.
PROHIBITION was legislated under the PRETEXT that phosphorus fertilizer used in turfgrass maintenance is somehow one of the leading contributors to toxic CYANO-BACTERIA BLUE-GREEN ALGAE in Lake Champlain.
Enviro-Lunatics even used DOMESTIC ANIMAL DEATHS as WEAPONS OF COERCION and ENVIRONMENTAL-TERROR.
There are two main EXCEPTIONS to the consumer portion of the law.
• Phosphorus can be applied to turf WHEN A SOIL TEST HAS BEEN PERFORMED in the last eighteen months indicating a phosphorus deficiency. The law states that the Secretary of Agriculture should have approved a standard for soil tests before October 2011.
• Phosphorus can be used WHEN NEW TURF HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED FROM SEED OR SOD. In this case, its use is limited to only the first growing season.
This law DOES NOT APPLY TO …
● Land used for AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION.
● Private and public GOLF FACILITIES.
The bill as passed — Act 37 of H.26 — also states ―
A golf course shall be REQUIRED TO SUBMIT to the Secretary of Agriculture … a NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT PLAN for the use and application of fertilizer to grasses or other lands owned or controlled by the golf course.
According to the bill, Golf Facilities must submit NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT PLANS beginning on July 1st, 2012.
Not surprisingly, NONE of the representatives at local golf facilities were aware of such requirements.
Even in America, Golf Industry Trade Associations continue to FAIL to represent their memberships in these critical matters.
