Great article Phasthound.
I remember when the boys would talk about stuff like this in 2003-2004 on this site. Guys like Lawrence Stone or Ric.
I do wish you would put more emphasis on the importance of Synthetic Pesticides, I still feel using words like ORGANIC PHC are making people think that Synthetic Pesticides (ones that are proven to work and work well) are not needed and should be a tool that is taken away from Professional Applicators.
Does NOFA agree with and teach their members to use Synthetics when needed or is their message Synthetics are not required as their are suitable Low Risk products available?
I am hoping you do not take these questions as personal, as that is not my intention.
