OhioPLANT, Coalition of Pesticide, Landscape, Agriculture, Nursery, and Turf professionals, formerly the Ohio Professional Applicators for Responsible Regulation, was founded in 1984 after egregious legislation was introduced at the state and local levels relative to pre-notification of lawn care applications. The group has since grown to include members from all sectors of the nutrient and pesticide application industries, as well as nurseries and golf courses.
