(SALEM, Ore.) - The Oregon Department of Agriculture has issued 12 notices of statewide detainment and stop sale and removal orders for horticultural products that contain pesticide active ingredients not listed on the label.

The orders call for the product manufacturers to immediately cease all sales, offers of sale, or other distribution in Oregon. In addition, products within Oregon or transported into the state by any type of business transaction or other method are detained.

These products are commonly used in horticulture and hydroponics, including cannabis production.

The 12 notices cover 14 products sold in Oregon that were also identified by the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) in late June as containing undeclared pesticide active ingredients.

In an abundance of caution, ODA issued its orders and is currently sampling and testing these products sold in Oregon.

ODA’s actions affect the following products and their manufacturers:

  • Vita Grow Thunder Boom– Marco Industries, Inc. dba American Agriculture, Portland, OR
  • OG Rapid Flower + Hardener– Crop Specific Solutions, Rockingham, Western Australia
  • Humboldt Roots– Humboldt Nutrients LLC, Paso Robles, CA
  • Safergro Mildew Cure for Powdery Mildew Control– JH Biotech, Ventura, CA
  • Olivia’s Cloning Gel– Olivia’s Solutions, Inc., Santa Rosa, CA
  • The Hammer– Plantlife Products, Kelowna, BC
  • Frost Protection Plus– Rambridge Wholesale Supply, Calgary, AB
  • Rock Resinator Heavy Yields– Rock Holdings Pty Ltd., Perth, Western Australia
  • SNS 217C All Natural Spider Mite Control– Sierra Natural Science, Inc., Salinas, CA
  • Root 66 1-1-1– Technaflora Plant Products Ltd., Mission, BC
  • Optic Foliar AT-AK, Optic Foliar Overgrow, Optic Foliar Switch– Tulsi Enterprises Ltd., Surrey, BC
  • Pyyro K 0-3-7– Van de Uber Marketing and Manufacturing, Port Moody, BC

Use of these products could cause growers to experience a loss of marketability and for cannabis to fail Oregon Health Authority (OHA) pesticide testing requirements. ODA has issued pesticide advisories to growers of all crops and retailers advising them to discontinue using or selling the products.

For additional information on the advisories and the pesticide active ingredients not listed on the labels, go to oregon.gov/ODA/programs/Pesticides/Pages/CannabisPesticides.aspx, contact ODA at (503) 986-4635 or email .

ODA is working with the Oregon Health Authority to determine any potential human health concerns associated with the use of products treated with these undeclared pesticide active ingredients.

ODA will proceed to address violations of Oregon’s pesticide and fertilizer laws, which include adulteration of a pesticide product and mislabeling of a pesticide or fertilizer product.
