Biopesticides Minimum Risk
Pesticides Used in
Organic Ag

Many things found in nature can be used to control pests. Many pesticides that are based on natural substances are allowed for use in organic agriculture. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) evaluates some of them as 'biopesticides.' There is also a small list of 'minimum risk pesticides' that are exempt from EPA review.
