Can we ever grow only organic crops in the United States?

    This is very doubtful.  Our agriculture relies on fertilizer to enhance the output of certian plant species.  Since the advent of the Haber-Bosch process (a method for making artificial fertilizer) in the early 1900s, the world’s population has grown considerably.  This populaiton growth can be attributed to increased food production, something that is likely impossible with only organic foods.

    It would likely take many many years to achieve this. Many farmers are used to their methods and will continue to use fertilizers and pesticides. Many new insects are being introduced and must be controlled with pesticides because we do not have their natural predators present to help reduce their numbers. We also need a lot of food and farming organically is expensive and time consuming.
