BioWorks Announces OMRI Listing for SuffOil-X
BioWorks announced that the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) has reviewed the company’s EPA registered product, SuffOil-X Spray Oil Emulsion, and approved the listing for use in organic production.
SuffOil-X controls insects, mites and foliar fungi in a range of vegetable, nursery, ornamental and greenhouse crops. The oil is a unique concentrate of pre-emulsified, high paraffinic, low aromatic oil. A thin, uniform coating, the oil kills pests with a low risk of burn or stress to plants. The product also dilutes easier with water and more thoroughly than other spray oils, and does not require rigorous agitation to keep the mix in suspension. SuffOil-X has a four-hour restricted entry interval (REI).
