The Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA) has once again expanded its list of pesticides approved for use on cannabis crops.

Since last month, the state department has added four more pesticide products to the list, which now exceeds 400 compounds.

The new pesticides include:

  • The fungicide and mite suppressant Mite-Phite ZM, produced by the Agro-K corporation
  • Fortify Fungicide, produced by RX Green Technologies
  • The plant growth regulator VaRX Brand MavRX, produced by Innvictus Crop Care, LLC
  • The fungicide and bacteriacide Decco Ag Paa, produced by Decco US Post-Harvest Inc

Following review from the state’s CDA, the pesticides were deemed safe to use in accordance with Colorado’s Pesticide Applicators’ Act.

The CDA warns that pesticide products can be removed from the allowed products list if the registrant has not renewed their pesticide product with the department.
