What does it take to grow food certified organic?

New information about pesticides on some organic produce in Canada has some people questioning the certification process.

Records released by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency show 23.6 per cent of the 178 organic apples tested in 2009 and 2010 contained pesticide residue.
