(b) the name and address of the person making application for registration of the commercial fertilizer;

(c) the guaranteed analysis including: (A) The minimum percentage of nitrogen; (B) the minimum percentage of total phosphorus pentoxide (P2O5), which is more commonly known and which shall be shown as total phosphoric acid; (C) the minimum percentage of available phosphorus pentoxide (P2O5), which is more commonly known and which shall be shown as available phosphoric acid; (D) the minimum percentage of dipotassium oxide (K2O), which is more commonly known and which shall be shown as water soluble potash; (E) the kind and minimum percentage of any and all other plant food elements or compounds contributing to the value of the commercial fertilizer, expressed separately; (F) a statement authorizing the secretary or an authorized representative of the secretary to examine all records of the applicant necessary for the purpose of verifying and determining the inspection fee; and (G) such other information as may be prescribed by rules and regulations. The total phosphoric acid need not be shown on the application for registration of commercial fertilizers other than unacidulated mineral phosphatic materials, basic slag, bone, tankage, and other natural organic phosphate materials.

(2) If the application meets the requirements of this act, and the person making application shall pay a registration fee of $5 for each commercial fertilizer, the secretary shall register each such product. Such registration may be revoked for failure to comply with requirements of article 12 of chapter 2 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto. All registrations shall expire on June 30 of each year. Each person who secures registration of a commercial fertilizer shall semiannually submit to the secretary a written statement of the tonnage of each kind or grade of commercial fertilizer, shipped to or sold within this state. The registrant shall not be required to report direct shipments of commercial fertilizer and fertilizer materials to fertilizer manufacturers or mixers, but such fertilizer manufacturers or mixers shall report this tonnage of such commercial fertilizers shipped, sold or distributed by them in this state and not used in manufacturing processes. Such statements shall respectively include all shipments or sales for the six-month periods beginning July 1 to and including December 31, and six-month periods beginning January 1 to and including June 30. The secretary may cancel the registrations of any person failing to file the tonnage statement within 30 days from the date of the close of each period. The secretary may grant a reasonable extension of time. Information furnished to the secretary shall not be disclosed in such a way as to divulge the operations of any person.
