|The award-winning Pharm Solutions product line includes Flower, Veggie and Indoor Pharm.|
Susan E. Lewis, founder and president of Pharm Solutions, says, â€śWe think every pesticide sold should be USDA/National Organic Program Certified Organic. Consumers should not have to settle for less.â€ť
The family started out with strict guidelines for their own gardensâ€”any pesticide they placed on their plants had to be natural and environmentally friendly.
|Pharm Solutionsâ€™ patent-pending product line includes:
When most of the products they tried failed, the family decided to make their own.
They didÂ extensive research and created an organic â€śsystemâ€ť that would treat various plant and crop ailments.
They have products that repel pests; and if that doesnâ€™t work–and a plant becomes infected or infested–they can use their insecticidal soaps, which contain pure essential oils (also containing miticides and fungicides).
The minimal treatment system, gives plants a chance to be healthy on their own–with no or very little human-applied treatment.
The insecticidal soaps target pests with one application, reducing labor costs.
In every setting â€“ indoor, outdoor or nursery â€“ the health risks associated with standard pesticides are eliminated.
The products can be used all the way through harvest without any risks to the plant.
The familyâ€™s passion and dedication and their products’ effectiveness were recognized in 2006 by the Lawn and Garden Marketing and Distrubution Association; Pharm Solutions ready-to-use product line was voted â€śBest New Product,â€ť â€śBest of Showâ€ť and â€śBest New Packaging.â€ť
