Virginia’s Commercial Fertilizer Law
requires distributors of regulated products (commercial fertilizers, specialty fertilizers, soil amendments, and horticultural growing media)
to submit (i) statistical tonnage reports, (ii) inspection fee reports, and (iii) payment of inspection fees. Distributors are required to
report to VDACS, the tons of regulated products sold to a non-licensee during the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Also required is
submission of an inspection fee of $0.25/ton or $35.00, whichever is greater. If zero tons have been distributed during the fiscal year,
submission of the report accompanied by the minimum inspection fee ($35.00) is still required.
Statistical tonnage data and inspection fee payments can now be submitted online using the Fertilizer Tonnage Reporting System.

Distributors of these products may also submit their tonnage reports by mail and pay by check.
