Hydroponics/Aquaponics – USDA Organic or Not?

slide1This week, the National Organics Standards Board (NOSB), an advisory body to the USDA on all things organic met to discuss whether some hydroponic and aquaponic farms could keep their organic certifications. Marianne Cufone, Recirculating Farms Coalition ED, was on the appointed Task Force that collected information and submitted a report for the NOSB on this matter. There were a number of articles discussing the issue – on the front page of New York Times, and National Geographic – and she wrote an op-ed that ran on CNN.com
