Average acre of California grown cotton:
200 lbs nitrogen
60 lbs phosphorous
40 lbs potash
46% of all U.S. counties contain groundwater that is susceptible to contamination by agricultural pesticides and fertilizers.
14 MILLION people in the U.S. may be exposed to herbicides through contaminated drinking water.
