    Default Re: 10 acres of Pumpkins in full bloom, Amish soaking them with Sevin!?!?!!!!!

    I know of over a dozen Amish that use extreme amounts of pesticides!!! In some area they use more then any other farmers as they are not health conscious anymore, they are about the money!!

    The Amish do things to make money. They are not afraid to use fertilizer or pesticides. If they think a pesticide will help them make money they will use it. Like all farmers, some are better than others. Some worry more about protecting their crop/livestock than following labels.

    Most Amish only go to school through the eight grade. Understanding pesticide labels and calibrating application equipment may be a challenge for some.

    Amish does not equal organic.
