Pyralid poisoning

Pyralid poisoning

I receive emails almost every day with reports of pyralid poisoning.  It is so disheartening for all when you purchase a compost in good faith and then find it damages your efforts in producing food.  This is especially difficult for new gardeners who may not have heard of this problem.  If you find notably stunted growth or curling of the new growth points, not the older leaves, it may be due to pyralid poisoning.  Please do report any problems to [email protected] and [email protected] headed “Pyralid contamination”.
