TK: It would be great to nab an interview with the author: I will work on that....

What was he thinking? Jim Prevor suggests that produce grown organically should be labeled as such, even if said produce is marketed as conventional fruits and vegetables.  That doesn't make sense to me, as it would add unnecessary expense for no added benefit. I put the question up to a vote on the Fresh Produce Industry Discussion Group. Check out the poll and the link to Prevor's argument here.

In Produce farming on the brink, Daniel Cohen dispenses a lot of advice. I like what he said here:


Regulators have a compulsive belief in the efficacy of complex paperwork, almost for its own sake. It could be called faith-based paperwork. The same money could be spent on solving problems, but they assume the solutions are all known.
