(1) The name and address of the registrant;

(2) The additive's brand name;

(3) The purpose or proposed use of the additive;

(4) Directions for the additive's use;

(C) The director shall register an agricultural additive unless he determines that:

(1) The application for registration is not complete;

(2) The additive will not or is not likely to produce the results or effects claimed when used as directed; or

(3) The additive is not useful for agricultural production in this state.

(D) All registrations shall expire on the thirty-first day of December and shall be renewed according to the standard renewal procedure of sections 4745.01 to 4745.03 of the Revised Code.
