(a)  Custom‑blended pesticide‑fertilizer mixtures are hereby exempted from the registration requirement of the North Carolina Pesticide Law of 1971 provided the following requirements are met:

(1)           The custom blend is prepared to the order of the user and is not held in inventory; and

(2)           The pesticide used in the blend bears end‑use labeling directions providing for mixing with fertilizer or mixing with fertilizer is recommended in writing by an appropriate federal or state agency or official; and

(3)           The custom blend is delivered to the user together with a copy of the pesticide end‑use labeling which is registered and a statement specifying the composition of the mixture and proper application rate.

(b)  In the context of these regulations, end‑use labeling means labeling containing directions for use in pest control and otherwise meeting with federal requirements (40 CFR 156.10). Labeling stating that a product is intended for use only in manufacturing or formulating is not considered end‑use labeling.
