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.

For more information, including a free insect ID Chart, and other literature concerning the benefits of Azatrol, contact PBI/Gordon toll free at 1-800-821-7925, or visit pbigordon.com/azatrol.
