While, in the spirit of continuous improvement, Certified Greenhouse Farmers and its standards will evolve, it’s critical that as an industry we develop a definition of greenhouse as it stands today. Doing so will not only protect the integrity of the process, but also safeguard customers and consumers who purchase products.

Ed Beckman is president of Certified Greenhouse Farmers, a trade association representing greenhouse growers who produce in Canada, Mexico and the U.S.

The State of California may be on to something, with its labeling law, here are some of proposals for labeling laws: If you do not drive a high tech vehicle like this a Ferrari or a Porsche, then You can be legally labeled in the State of California as a “pedestrian”. If you are not wearing high tech shoes like Nikes, Then you can be legally labeled in the State of California as being “barefoot” or , If you are not dressed by using a sophisticated suit or a famous designer outfit, then you can be legally labeled in the State of California as being “Naked” If you are not married to someone with high tech breast implants or plastics surgery; Then you can be legally labeled in the State of California as being:“Single” Off course in California they could not label you as having a high tech wife, but by only having a “Hot Wife”. Can anybody really differentiate quality from active technology (high tech) to passive technology? Or taste or Food safety or anything that would motivate a consumer to pay more? Remember these technologies where develop to enhance nature, not to compete with it. Don’t try justifying your high cost structure with terms, labels or certifications, the game is about being efficient, productive, more competitive and sustainable , other areas of the world can do this without your definition.
