Of course, it is intentional. There are two options for the government
1) if you choose to be organic, you must pay me to inspect you that
you don't use chemicals blah blah, as Sal said.
2) if you use chemicals, you must pay me to inspect you that you don't
use too much blah blah
The first option favors the chemical firms, because it makes organic
expensive, even with lower inputs. In effect, it makes chemical use
the default. The second option favors organics, because it makes
chemically-grown crops more expensive. It makes organic the default.
If the government used the first option (we're not even talking of
subsidies here!). Organics will take over very quickly. This approach
will automatically take care of the cheats who falsely claim they are
organic, but use chemicals. They can be prosecuted for evading
No chemicals, no need for certification. This should be the goal.
