11.2 Certified Naturally Grown (CNG)

3 months ago

1 min read

Known as the "grassroots alternative to organic," CNG certification follows organic standards but focuses on growers who sell directly to the consumer. CNG farmers are restricted from using synt8hetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Farms with CNG certification undergo an annual inspection and pay an annual fee. Inspections can be conducted by other CNG farmers, Extension agents, master gardeners, or other qualified personnel. Sections of the CNG standards for aquaponics can be found at (http://www.cngfarming.org/aquaponics_standards)
