Karanja Oil
8593 Karanja Oil Eastern tradition and Western utilitarianism meet again! Enlightened growers of veggies, fruits and medical ganja have convinced us to bring back karanja oil for its noteworthy pest- and disease-fighting properties. Pressed from the seed of the pongam tree of India, the oil is rich in several bitter flavonoids that stimulate plant immune function. Numerous studies have shown the oil to prevent many pests from feeding and laying eggs and to kill pests such as mites, aphids and leafminer larvae. Studies also show karanja works synergistically with a number of pest management sprays—especially Neem Oil—to significantly improve their efficacy, and it lasts longer on plants than other botanical insecticides. Michael Phillips “completely recommends” using karanja in the Holistic Orchard Spray regime. It may be used instead of neem for plants like pear trees that can have a phytotoxic response to neem oil. It’s also safer for bees, containing no azadirachtins. Furthermore, karanja remains a liquid at 40° or colder, making it easier to mix than neem. Very safe to handle and spray. To make a spray, mix 1 oz karanja oil (or ½ karanja and ½ neem oil) with 2 tsp biodegradable dish soap, and add to 1 gal lukewarm water. OMRI BACK!

Inoculants, soil amendments, fertilizers, livestock supplies and pesticides are labeled as:
OMRI: Organic Materials Review Institute. Most state certifying agencies, including MOFGA, accept OMRI approval.
MOFGA: Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association. Reviewed by MOFGA and allowed for use on MOFGA-certified farms. Check with your certifier.
WSDA: The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Organic Certifying division has approved these products for use in organic agriculture in Washington State. MOFGA has indicated that they will accept products on this list for their certification program. Check with your certifier.
Nat’l List: One-ingredient products on the NOP* List of Allowed Substances (subpart G of the Organic Foods Production Act, sections 205.601-606). Check with your certifier.
AYC: Products whose active ingredient is on the list of allowed substances, but which are not on the OMRI or WSDA list. Ask your certifier.
Not Allowed: A few of the products we list are not allowed for organic production but we think they have a place in sensible agriculture and can be used when certification is not an issue.
