Inert Ingredients in Pesticides for Organic Production
The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is providing additional time for the public to submit comments and information about how to update the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic regulations on inert ingredients in pesticides used in organic production. AMS seeks comments on alternatives to its existing regulations that would align with the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 (OFPA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulatory framework for inert ingredients. Information from public comments would inform AMS's approach to this topic, including any proposed revisions of the USDA organic regulations.
