Sample text

Initially, when beans are at 30 percent humidity (having had surface water removed in a pre-drying process), evaporative cooling permits the use of very hot air input (80–90°C) without significantly heating the beans themselves. As humidity drops into the high teens, air temperature can be reduced to 60–70°, while the bean temperature remains less than 40°. Finally, as 12 percent humidity is approached, air temperature can be further lowered, so that bean temperature never gets much higher than body temperature.

Even if we don’t understand it, I think that’s the sense. I think with organic, you have everything present, which creates the balance. It does improve the quality of the crop. It does make the plants healthier. A healthier plant produces healthier fruit, a better quality fruit, that lasts longer, we’ve noticed. 8 NOTES 1. David R. Montgomery, Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007). 2. Dan Koeppel, Banana: The Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World (New York: Hudson Street Press, 2008).

Rotenone, derived from legumes, is okay, even though it kills fish and is somewhat toxic to humans. Sulfur occurs naturally and hence is allowed for organics, but I wouldn’t put it on cereal. Copper sulfate, which used to be dumped from airplanes onto banana plants and the workers who picked the crop, tending to turn the humans blue,2 is still permitted—in small amounts and in certain conditions. Plants don’t generally differentiate between nitrogen put around them in manure or in synthetic ammonium products, although the rate of breakdown and usage in the soil can be different.
