Abstract/Contents:Announces that "DLF Organic, which supplies organic forage seeds for livestock and organic cover crop seed for renewing acreage, has introduced organic lawn seed for homeowners and landscapers - the only organic grass seed available in the United States." Describes the "strict regulations mandated by the USDA [United States Department of Agriculture] [that] require potential organic production fields [to] be chemical free for three years." Concludes that "the benefit to organic lawn care professionals is having one more value-added tool to offer customers who want a completely organic lawn."
