SARASOTA, Fla. -- Residents and commercial landscapers in Sarasota County have only a few more days to use most fertilizers before a summer ban kicks in.

Fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorus are banned between June 1 and September 30.

ABC 7's Todd Dunn is working on this story, and will outline what is banned, why, and what are some alternatives, tonight on ABC 7 News.
