I've read all of the debate going back and forth these past few weeks,
and I'm starting to get more confused than I was when I first read the
standards! As I understand it, if an organic farmer grows food at higher
than the proposed standard, he will still be able to call his food
organic, using the national label. But he will not be able to label his
food as being organic AND "more organic" than the government standard. I
thought that they didn't want to prohibit these growers from being called
organic, but they wanted to prohibit them from claiming that they were
using higher standards than the government. (Which I still think is
ridiculous). Am I right, or utterly confused?
