Organic Products - Acceptable & Unacceptable
 

TEXAS ORGANIC RESEARCH CENTER (TORC) September 2012

In general, toxic synthetic pesticides are specifically prohibited, i.e., neurotoxins including all carbamates, organophosphates, pyrethroids, organochlorines and all products containing piperonyl butoxide (PBO). Certain toxic organic pesticides such as pyrethrum are also excluded.

We used to allow “bridge” or “transition” products that contain synthetic ingredients but no longer believe that is acceptable for organic programs. They are certainly better than pure synthetic products. Some garden centers have their own private label products. Most of those are very good but be sure to read labels and ask questions.
