    I understand that Bayer is passing laws to outlaw the applications of organics. Does anyone know about this?
    I heard that sewage sludge and urea will now rule!

    fed govt, state, and municipalities pass laws. Not Bayer.
    Bayer has been looking @ organic and biological control solutions, as have most companies.

    Sewege sludge ( bio-solids ) are organic. and have & will continue to be widely used. as we seek solutions to waste problems and nutrient management issues.

    Urea is an endangered species, due to its leaching properties.
    win water insoluble nitrogen is going to prevail from an enviromental standpoint, as well as economic if you fully understand the concept.

    I would think liquid urea would have less leaching properties VS IBDU or the sorts. It would be prone to turning to gas if anything. The bayer thing is a joke, BUT I wonder if corporations do lobby for less stringent laws?
