USDA: Don't Ban Aquaponics and Organic Hydro From Organic Farming

Posted by Colin Archipley on May 25, 2016 at 6:11am 0 Comments

Created by S.T. on May 17, 2016

Small farmers are turning to aquaponics and hydroponics in droves. These have a proven record of safe, pesticide-free production. And far from being "sterile," studies overwhelmingly show beneficial, disease-fighting root flora-- a staple of organics-- in aquaponics and hydro. Water use is 1/10 to 1/100th of growing the same food in soil. Finally, aquaponics and hydro are especially popular for new farmers and urban agriculture because you don't have to own land to use them. 

In spite of these advantages, the USDA is considering banning aquaponics and organic hydro (hydroponics using organic nutrient sources) from organic farming. Add your voice to the campaign to keep organic aquaponics and hydro legal!
