Too often we look to Organics as the abstance of chemicals. I feel this this short sighted and we are missing the point. Organics need to be lifted as the modle for health. All plant health comes from the soil, if at first we don't have our soils built, we can use organic foliar feeding aplications, to raise the brix level in crops. Currently Dr Andersen is working in California, to develope a method to measure fruit health. Currently a few other countrys have a minium brix rateing to be sold as organic( In addition to the abstance of Chemical) We also need to be careful not to just look at brix rating, but rather use that as one rating. This past summer I tasted cherries from 2 diffrent orchards, the orchard with the highest brixs, had less flavor. I questioned the growers on their methods, and the orchard with the higher brixs used nitrogen at the right time to raise the brixs, but that did nothing for the flavor.
