§

364. Registration

(a) Each brand

or grade of fertilizer shall be registered in the name of the person whose name

appears upon the label before being distributed in this State. The application

for registration shall be submitted to the Secretary on a form furnished by the

Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets and shall be accompanied by a fee of

$20.00 per nutrient or recognized plant food element to a maximum of $140.00

per brand or grade. Upon approval by the Secretary, a copy of the registration

shall be furnished to the applicant. All registrations expire on December 31 of

each year. The application shall include the following information:

(1) the brand

and grade;

(2) the

guaranteed analysis; and

(3) the name and

address of the registrant.

(b) A distributor

shall not be required to register any fertilizer which is already registered

under this chapter by another person, provided there is no change in the label

for the fertilizer.

(c) A

distributor shall not be required to register each grade of fertilizer

formulated according to specifications which are furnished by a consumer prior

to mixing, but shall be required to label the fertilizer as provided in

subsection 365(b) of this title.

(d) Each

separately identified agricultural lime product shall be registered before

being distributed in this State. Registration shall be performed in the same

manner as fertilizer registration except that each application shall be

accompanied by a fee of $40.00 per product.

registration and tonnage fees, along with any deficiency penalties collected

pursuant to sections 331 and 372 of this title, shall be deposited in a special

administering the provisions of this title and any other provisions of law

relating to feeds and seeds. (Added 1985, No. 126 (Adj. Sess.), § 1; amended
