We sell a mined-mineral-based hydroponic nutrient/fertilizer.  We would like
to find out if there are any ?organic? type certifications for our
nutrient or for plants grown using our nutrient, that we could use to
label our product when it is sold in the United States.

We have checked OMRI and the National Organic Program, but these do
not seem to be helpful for certifying our product.  We have looked at
the various categories for listing a product as being a specified
percent organic, and these categories do not seem to be useful to us either.

We have seen references to ?mineral organic? certifications in Europe,
but we cannot locate legal descriptions of this certification nor
current contact information for any agencies that provide this
certification.  We believe this certification may be for
nutrients/plants like ours.  A reference to this can be found by
searching on Google for <"mineral organic" general hydroponics>.

The certifying agency does not need to be in the U.S. or be a large,
recognized company, but the certification must be useful for us when
we sell our product in the U.S.  The certification does not have to be
for ?organic? but could be for something very close to that term, that
would be recognizable to the consumer as related to organic.  Natural
or Eco certifications are not close enough.

To summarize, we are looking for current contacts and information
regarding ?organic? type certifications and certifying agencies that
would be useful for labeling our mineral-based hydroponic
fertilizer/nutrient when sold in the U.S.
