USDA - NOP STATUS: Allowed for use as insecticide, miticide, algicide,
and moss killer. Ammonium soaps are permitted as animal repellants
provided there is no contact with edible portion of crop or with soil. Soap is
not currently permitted for use as a fungicide or herbicide. (NOP 2000).
The USDA-NOP regulation does not describe the type of soaps permitted,
though the initial review was for potassium salts of fatty acids. Soaps
classed by EPA as List 4 inerts (inerts of minimal concern) may be used as
inert ingredients and adjuvants.
