Percent Organic and SyntheticCompromise
Kentucky – AAPFCO – A material containing carbon and one or more elements other than hydrogen and oxygen essential for plant growth.
Florida – AAPFCO – with caveat that the specific organic nutrient is identified and percent natural and synthetic is represented on the label.
Texas – NOP / AAPFCO – follows AAPFCO in as much as 60% of organic N claimed must be slow release. MU is not approved under NOP standard.Irreconcilable Differences
Uniformity is a goal, but not always the objective.
Except for organic, equitable resolution among states has been achieved.Conclusion
