1) Р’В§ 205.601 Synthetic substances allowed for use in organic crop production.

2) Р’В§ 205.603 Synthetic substances allowed for use in organic livestock production.

3) Р’В§ 205.605 Nonagricultural (nonorganic) substances allowed as ingredient

and a link to the PDF of the document

Enjoy! (if you can)
