Where is the ORGANIC cotton burr compost

I've contacted many of the suppliers and they tell me that GM cotton is mixed in and cannot be separated. If one is growing an organic garden, especially organic food I don't think GM compost is a good idea.



Richard,
While that seems to make sense on the surface, by pure definition of the word 'compost' all these concerns are negated due to the duration and temperture of the composting process. Bacteria and fungi (the two most prominent types of micro-organisms) breakdown organic matter and effectively transform it into compost. Producers are required to document every batch of compost they produce proving that they have met these conditions. The composting process also kills pathogens such as e-coli and even weed seeds.

That is why I will tell you, don't worry about cotton burr scraps from Geneticaly Modified seeds- they are broken down naturally. I would be more concerned with the fact that some chemist and corporation believe that they can alter what nature has produced and make it better without disrupting the entire balance of nature. Not an pleasant scenario to think out.
What are your thoughts on that?
