The foundation of organic agriculture is soil ecology, not compliant inputs. While I think that hydroponics, using CFR7205 allowed materials, is a valuable production method especially in an urban setting it is not organic. I support the moratorium until the final, hopefully correct, decision is made. 

Joe is a long time pioneer in the organic movement. He has been a farmer, a certifier, a member of the NOSB, and founder of the OTA, and was vice president of the certifying group QAI.
