Re: Question on organic production



HI Alejandro,

We talk about cleaner production, we can definitely talk about organic
farming.  The best sources of guidance publications I have seen are
www.nofa.org, especially the proceedings of the farmer's exchanges and the
organic principles and practices series.  See also the NOFA Organic Land
Care Standards.  

Also http://www.ams.usda.gov/nop/ is a great index page for this topic.

Good luck and fair weather!
