Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 10
§ 146-g. Retail sale. Any retailer who sells or offers for sale to
consumers specialty fertilizer in which the available phosphate (P205)
content is greater than 0.67 percent, shall:

(a) display such phosphorus-containing specialty fertilizer separately
from non-phosphorus specialty fertilizer; and

(b) post in the location where phosphorus-containing specialty
fertilizer is displayed a clearly visible sign which is at least eight
and one-half inches by eleven inches in size and states that:

"Phosphorus runoff poses a threat to water quality. Therefore, under
New York law, phosphorus-containing fertilizer may only be applied to
lawn or non-agricultural turf when:

(1) A soil test indicates that additional phosphorus is needed for
growth of that lawn or non-agricultural turf; or

(2) The fertilizer is used for newly established lawn or
non-agricultural turf during the first growing season."
