USDA Sanctioned Organization Verifies All Four Grow Mixes are Organic
Obtaining OMRI listing for any product isn’t easy. That’s why the soil scientists at Sun Gro Horticulture are so proud to announce that all four of our Sunshine Advanced grow mixes are now OMRI Listed.
OMRI is the Organic Materials Review Institute, a trusted non-profit organization that independently verifies if a product labeled as organic really is organic and can be used for organic production. OMRI uses the U.S. organic standards established by the USDA National Organic Program to evaluate a product and its material origins. These are the standards that farmers must follow to label their produce as certified organic.
This seal is the result of a rigorous testing process which analyzes all materials used in organic crop production to ensure they are on the Permitted Substances List. Once accepted, this hydroponic media becomes part of the OMRI Products List© so that growers and consumers alike can verify the purity of this product. The presence of the OMRI seal on the bag provides at-a-glance verification that these retail products can be used for cultivating an organic crop.
Now Sunshine Advanced Mix #4, Rainforest Blend, Ultra Coir and Super Hydro are all individually OMRI listed. Each of these blends creates an ideal environment for mycorhizzae, added to ensure the presence of beneficial microbes to benefit young and further developed hydroponic plants. Such organisms are sensitive to toxins, so their presence ensures that all four blends offer both ideal rooting media and the natural microbes that improve rooting strength and disease resistance. Such organisms are hyper-sensitive to chemicals and require a truly organic media to thrive.
