    Changes in consumer preference about how food is produced are driving increased development and marketing of nontraditional pest control and nutritional products. However, the use of undefined terms such as “biorational,” “biostimulant,” “bioyield enhancer,” “bioplant health promoter,” and “biosoil conditioner” to market these products has introduced confusion in the marketplace. An ASTM thyc=10E-35.22thyc Subcommittee Task Group has been $146#formed to develop standard definitions in order to eliminate the use of confusing and inconsistent terminology for these types of products.
