  Organic Greenhouse Vegetable Production
Organic greenhouse vegetable production is regularly practiced by certified organic farmers and market gardeners, and has potential for wider adaptation by established greenhouse operators and entry level growers as a niche market or sustainable method of production.
Organic farmers rely heavily on crop rotations, crop residues, animal manures, legumes, green manures, organic wastes, and mineral-bearing rocks to feed the soil and supply plant nutrients.
Organic fertilizers and soil amendments are extensively used to feed the soil.

  organic
Organic matter in soils is represented by plant debris or litter in various stages of decomposition through to humus and includes the living organisms in the soil.
They can be classified in heterotrophs, which require C in the form of organic molecules for growth, and the autotrophs, which can synthesize their cell substance from the C of CO, harnessing the energy of sunlight (in the case of photosynthetic bacteria and algae) or chemical energy from the oxidation of inorganic compounds (the chemoautotrophs).
Organic soils (Histosols) whose formation is favored by waterlogging may have turnover times exceeding 2000 y and soils of tundra regions where low temperatures retard oxidation may have turnover times exceeding 100 y.

 Welsh organic statistics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The breakdown of fully organic land use in Wales mirrors that of the UK as a whole, the majority (nearly 90%) being grassland or pasture for lamb or cattle, see Table 1.
The average organic farm size in Wales is 94 ha, somewhat smaller than in England and Scotland, and the number of farmers has fallen slightly from 619 to 613 during the year to April 2004.
Consequently, almost 90% or 44,341 hectares of organic land in Wales is grassland; of this 33,650 hectares is permanent pasture and 10,691 hectares is temporary leys.

 Organic chemistry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Organic chemistry received a boost when it was realized that these compounds could be treated in ways similar to inorganic compounds and could be manufactured by means other than 'vital force'.
Common synthetic organic polymers are polyethylene or polythene, polypropylene, nylon, teflon or PTFE, polystyrene, polyesters, polymethylmethacrylate (commonly known as perspex or plexiglas) polyvinylchloride or PVC, and polyisobutylene important artificial or synthetic rubber also the polymerised butadiene, a rubber component.
Because many organic compounds have relatively low boiling points and/or dissolve easily in organic solvents there exist many methods for separating mixtures into pure constituents that are specific to organic chemistry such as distillation, crystallization and chromatography techniques.

 ERS/USDA Data - Organic Production
While adoption of organic farming systems showed strong gains between 1992 and 2005 and the adoption rate remains high, the overall adoption level is still low—only about 0.5 percent of all U.S. cropland and 0.5 percent of all U.S. pasture was certified organic in 2005.
For example, organic farmers provide habitat for predators and parasites of crop pests, calculate planting/harvesting dates and rotate crops to maintain soil fertility, and cycle animal and green manures as fertilizer.
Organic livestock was beginning to catch up with produce in 2005, with 1 percent of U.S. dairy cows and 0.6 percent of the layer hens managed under certified organic systems.

 The Periodic Table(Page 1)
In a revision of his table in 1871 he arranged some elements and proposed a table of eight columns, obtained by splitting each of the long periods into a period of seven elements, an eighth group containing the three central elements (such as Fe, Co, Ni), and a second period of seven elements.
Mendeleev's table had the elements arranged by atomic weights with recurring properties in a periodic manner.

 National Organic Program   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Organically produced food cannot be distinguished visually from conventional food and cannot necessarily be distinguished by taste; therefore, consumers must rely on labels and other advertising tools for product information.
Farmers, food handlers, and other businesses that produce and handle organically grown food have a financial incentive to advertise that information because consumers have been willing to pay a price premium for these goods.
However, consumers face difficulties in discerning the organic attributes of a product, and many producers and handlers have sought third-party certification of organic claims.
