Azatrol® EC Insecticide Receives OMRI Certification
June 1, 2004
Kansas City, Missouri -- PBI/Gordon has announced that their botanical insecticide, Azatrol EC Insecticide, has been certified by the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI). OMRI is a non-profit organization that reviews the suitability of substances for use in organic production, processing and handling.
Atrazol is a broad spectrum product for the control of insect pests and mites on shrubs and trees, flowers, ornamental fruit and nut trees and turf. The active ingredient, azadirachtin is a complex molecule having multiple modes of activity including anti-feedant, growth regulation, ovipositioning deterrent and repellent action. This complexity makes it virtually impossible for insect resistance to develop.
Azatrol is a superior low-odor azadirachtin formulation, according to product manager, Dave Fearis. Azatrol is extracted from neem seed by a patented process developed by E.I.D Parry (India) Ltd. -- but the Azatrol formulation contains no neem oil. The purity of the Azatrol formulation gives consistent performance at a lower rate than other azadirachtin products, making use more economical, says Fearis. And it’s OMRI certified, which can be important to applicators in today’s environmentally sensitive marketplace.
