In regards to organic versus pesticide use, I can only compare my sister
in-law's orchard to my father in-law's.
She follows all the prescribed organic practices religiously, while he uses
a relaxed spray program only.
When her meager crop of apples is exhausted, she eats her Dad's.
Two orchards of the same size, one organic barely feeds a family
(preserving/fresh), while the one with the relaxed spray program feeds 4.5
My opinion... Properly applied pesticides are no risk. Keeping in mind
that organic "tobacco spray" and "rhubarb sprays" can be lethal. There is
a good balance that can be achieved between the two approaches.
