Thanks for info. Subbed up the thread
@GreenleafNutrients is your mega crop certified organic? Haven’t found any stamp he stating so on packaging thanks for your response
No, it is not organic, and probably will not be for a while. Calcium Nitrate is prohibited from being organic according to their rules. "OMRI Organic" certification is kind of a racket and more about money than actual science IMO. You have to petition them with tons of lobbyists and money to make a change, and even then, if another group with more money doesn't want your change, then it probably will not make it through. If someone can tell me some actual problems with using Calcium Nitrate I would love to hear it!
You can have "Organic" fish emulsion or animal dung which may have high levels of mercury, cadmium and arsenic which eventually will pass on to the crop/plant being grown. Not to mention, supporting animal agriculture industry which is ethically very questionable.
So we are Hydroponic Greenhouse Grade nutrients, and are pretty happy with that. The crops NASA grew in space were also hydroponic. Our products are always tested for extremely low or non-existent heavy metals and contaminants , perfectly suitable for any crop and food product meant for human consumption.
Thanks for the response
yeah, sorry about that. A few months ago, I thought we would be able to qualify for Organic under the new labeling process OMRI recently adopted
However, it doesn't apply to fertilizer, only hydroponic growing methods. So, technically, it is now possible under the new ruling to have Hydroponic crops be Organic. However, they would have to use non-hydroponic fertiliers (such as Calcium Nitrate), which from what I have seen is a sub-optimal process.
Interesting, thanks for sharing!
I was the lucky recipient of 1 of these freebies
it arrived damaged/and probably lost over 3/4 of the product - I was able to actually get about 1 pint of the nutes
I did recover some of the crumbs and diluted it no way to know the ratio - so i made it very diluted and applied to a very neglected outdoor yard plant and overnight the darn thing actually sprung back to life -- cant wait to see how this works on my important plants
