I encourage you not to be too trusting. There is an increasing amount of dishonesty in business when it means profit. Even with companies who have been selling and promoting a genuine organic product (ie liquid seaweed). Sad to say, I have found that is no gage for their honesty and credibility. Where certain chemicals do something that is in demand – like keeping our soils wet – dishonesty or ignorance reigns. Yes, some companies are ignorant, just like the public but they don't want to lose profit when you inform them. BE CAREFUL.
