Hi Mr. Foo, how are you?
In relation to Roberto's question:
Tuesday, April 18, 2000, 8:32:33 AM, you forwarded a statement from
Marc Cardoso at EgoGenics [email@example.com] that indicates there's
no need for soil, due to the fact that they are producing "algae in
a symbiotic relationship with Tilapia fish"; i.e., both being water
based organisms by nature.
My organisation, ECOGENICS, has taken the concept of the
micro-farm to a very dynamic level. ....(cut)....
The Ecogenics closed loop ecosystems
maximise the per square ft profitability by growing high ticket
products such as blue green algae in a symbiotic relationship with
Tilapia fish as a result of that self sustaining combination it is
then possible to grow high value crops hydroponically .....

RV> Do organic rules allow hydroponics (which I understand to mean growing
RV> plants without soil, on an artificial medium like water to which
RV> minerals and nutrients are added by the grower?
RV> I can't imagine how this can be organic, when such plants (or fish)
RV> will clearly be deprived of many micronutrients they get from the soil
RV> which scientists might not even have discovered yet.
