Organic's existence depends on credibility
USDA organic program's officials  assure that
    -  U.S.  and  foreign organic operations,
              both are held to  the same standards
USDA will raise scrutiny of  Eastern Europe,
     by sending an auditor to Ukraine  in the fall
                      and  a team to Turkey  this winter
It plans to  require all organic imports
                 to include certificates that will :
  -  enable the crops to be  traced back to
       foreign farms where they were grown
        instead of tracing to  only the firm that
              bought  and  transported the crops
It may also require the
       commodity traders of organic crops
                   to obtain certification from USDA
Organic Food Sales Are Booming;
         American Farmers Crying Foul?
