The organic food industry is in an uproar
over concerns that organic fertilizer may have been spiked with synthetic versions.
Last month, FBI and federal agriculture officials searched a California organic fertilizer factory, but wouldnâ??t disclose
their motive. The factory is the same location where environmental officials discovered aqueous ammonia, a synthetic fertilizer,
in 2005 and 2007.
Organics boosters fear consumers will abandon the foods if the industry canâ??t police its integrity. One senator said oversight
of organic fertilizer is â??kind of like the wild West.â??
