The Organic Difference
There are basically two differences between organic and conventionally grown hay. The first is fertilizer. In organic hay manure is primarily used. In order to be certified organic, no synthetic, chemical fertilizers can be used so manure is what is used to add necessary nutrients to the soil. The manure must come from organically fed animals. The second is pest control. Instead of using harmful chemicals to control unwanted insects, to produce organic hay a combination of biological means of control are used. Beneficial insects, cover crops, crop rotation and birds all help to reduce insect damage to the hay. Two great reasons to Go Organic!
