  2. Good site DrBob.

    Useful to think what is meant by "without sewer-sludge fertilizers, most synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, genetic engineering (biotechnology), growth hormones, irradiation and antibiotics."

    This is often abbreviated to as "without chemicals", but there are many used as pesticides in organic farming, e.g. sulfur, copper sulfate, natural pyrethrum etc.
