Interesting piece on the globalisation of organic good production. The premise being how green can it be to transport food across the globe. Certainly makes you think.
I grow my own veg on my allotment, and I consider its grown organically. Not organic as described by the taliban, sorry the organic lobby.
I use as few chemicals as possible. I use FYM but that’s not ‘organic’ as the straw will have had pesticides applied, and the cattle may have received medicines.
Oh yes, i try not to use chemicals, but I don’t have time to cut slugs in half with scissors so I use pellets. Rates as appropriate of course.
Transporting French beans from Africa onto Europe by jumbo jets doesn’t sound too organic to me.
