This document is to communicate to stakeholders the decision to uncouple fertilizer-pesticide combination products intended for lawn and turf uses.

Scope
This regulatory action is focussed on the lawn and turf uses of fertilizer-pesticide combination products on the following types of turf:

  • Lawn turf planted in or around residences, as well as public and commercial buildings including schools and cemeteries
  • Sports and recreational turf such as turf in parks, playgrounds, golf courses, zoos, botanical gardens and athletic playing fields.

These types of turf are collectively known as fine turf, which may be maintained by homeowners or by professional applicators.

This regulatory action does not include agricultural uses of fertilizer-pesticide combination products (turf farms), or products that have a single active material with both fertilizer and pesticidal properties.
