About NOP and OMRI
By meeting NOP standards, Merus® 3.0 can be used in or around
organic crops without putting organic crop certification at risk.
The OMRI Listed status of Merus® 3.0 means its components meet
the Organic Materials Review Institute standards for ingredients that
can be used in organic production or processing, meeting
USDA National Organic Program (NOP) standards.
UNDERSTANDING NATURAL
PYRETHRINS >>
Natural pyrethrins are a botanical
insecticide produced primarily by
flowers from the chrysanthemum family.
Flowers from pyrethrum-producing plants
are picked by hand, sun dried and sent to a
processing plant for extraction of the active
ingredient. In final formulation, Merus® 3.0
is a non-persistent adulticide with low acute
toxicity that provides effective control
without chemical synergists.
