The Green Industries Best Management Practices (GI-BMPs) are a science-based educational program for Green Industry workers (lawn-care and landscape maintenance professionals), brought to you by UF/IFAS Florida-Friendly Landscaping(TM) program. The GI-BMPs teach environmentally safe landscaping practices that help conserve and protect Florida’s ground and surface waters.

Florida law states that all commercial fertilizer applicators must have a certificate from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) (s. 482.1562, F.S.). To get this certificate, each commercial applicator must be trained in the GI-BMPs and receive a certificate of completion from UF/IFAS and FDEP.

More information can be found at the Green Industries Best Management Practices (GI-BMP) Website.
