ASK the Aggies: Organic “Pesticide”
I've heard that there is some sort of organic, bacterial powder that can be used on cabbages to kill pests. Does anyone know what it's called and where it can be purchased?
You are probably looking for "BT" (Bacillus thuringiensis) which is a bacterium that commonly used as a biological alternative to pesticide and is regarded as environmentally friendly. (NOTE: for the difference between home garden application of BT and BT genes in genetically modified crops, view the wikipedia page)
