Amino Acids – nonsynthetic
Allowed
Crop Fertilizers and Soil Amendments, Crop Management Tools and Production Aids
Nonsynthetic
Amino acids produced by plants, animals, and microorganisms that have not been genetically modified (see Glossary) and are extracted or isolated by hydrolysis, or by physical or other nonchemical means are considered nonsynthetic. Nonsynthetic amino acids may be used as plant growth regulators and chelating agents.
