This is significant. This report is from Industry trade magazine “Greenhouse Grower,” a Meister publication.
For decades, Meister’s bread has been buttered by Industrial Ag pushing their synthetic inputs with high-spend rag ads. Meister has been EXTREMELY ACCOMODATING and has historically displayed a blatant and clumsy chemical-centric editorial slant.
Therefore, for Meister to now actually report on organic overtaking toxic synthetic inputs represents a major milestone.
Organic is on fire. And now, even Meister Publishing must acknowledge this reality. Jim

“The Northeast, one of the early adopters of organic products, reports a much different experience than the Midwest’s. Those reporting increased sales are almost 10 percentage points above the Midwest.”
